Folkestone is not only worth visiting for the musical event this weekend. There is the possibility of getting an extraordinary cultural experience: Visitors are given the chance to book a Folkestone Artworks tour that takes them to see a collection of high calibre works displayed around the town.

To get a taste of what you can expect, have a listen to the Sacconi Quartet’s appearance on BBC Radio 3’s In Tune.

There are still tickets left to be purchased at the door, starting at £24 for one performance and £85 for the whole festival.

The Sacconi Quartet and Mark Padmore will perform Jonathan Dove’s In Damascus in London at their 15th birthday concert at Kings Place, London on 13 July 2016.
