What's on:

7:30pm – 10pm


Join us for a celebration of music and contemporary art, with playlists curated by this year’s Turner Prize artists.


Athelstan Sound – Foyle Rooms, 7:30pm – 10pm

Hosted by Margate-based collective Athelstan Sound, this workshop will focus on how sound can respond to the artwork found in this year’s Turner Prize exhibitions. Expect improvisation, sound making, listening and beyond. It’s an open house including games, experiments and whatever participants bring to the space.

Athelstan Sound was founded in 2015 and has convened thirty events over the past four years in Margate. The group is convened by artist Dan Scott and workshops are led by local musicians, artists, dancers and attended by sound and musician practitioners as well as people for whom Athelstan Sound was there first experience with the sound arts. They pursue an inclusive approach and operate an open-door policy, encouraging both professionals and amateur sound makers to attend, as well as those are simply curious and willing. As well as the workshops Athelstan Sound also performs as a live ensemble, with performances at Turner Contemporary, Folkstone Triennial, Contrapop Festival, and other events across Kent.


7:30pm – 8:15pm & 8:45pm – 9:30pm

Join Turner Contemporary’s resident practical philosopher as they host philosophical conversations, journeying between ideas found in Turner Prize 2019, as you move between the floors of the gallery. Absolutely ALL are welcome.
