Heritage Strand

Our new heritage stand focuses on Margate’s changing reputation across the last 100 years. We create debate by contrasting the town’s history as a tourist hot-spot, to grittier stories born out of economic neglect and fears of migration, and the newer affluent ‘Down From London’ crowds – and ask: “how does the area shape you, and how do you shape the area?”
