Letter from Tracey Emin CBE RA

“It was a stormy windy night in November. Paparazzi, journalists and news agency’s stood in the blustery winds as the waves crashed over the harbour wall. The Turner Prize was finally coming to Turner country… the Turner Prize was back to its glory days.”

As we count down to the #TurnerPrize2019 awards ceremony on 3rd December, read this extraordinary letter written by Tracey Emin CBE RA  when we bid to bring Turner Prize to Margate back in 2017.
