MAKING WAVES is a weekend of live performance taking place in three of Margate’s most prestigious venues -  the historic Theatre Royal, the UK’s second oldest working theatre, the diminutive Tom Thumb and Olby’s Soul Café.

 

Coinciding with the start of Margate Now and the opening of the Turner Prize exhibition, Making Waves runs from Friday 27th September through to Sunday 29th September - a great opportunity to see some of the best work that is being created in East Kent.

 

Here is the programme...
