- The 350-capacity space plans to open on May 20th.
A new arts venue with panoramic sea views is opening in Margate, UK.
Faith In Strangers aims to open its doors on May 20th for table service, with a full launch planned for June 24th. The space, which can host 350 people, has a Funktion-One soundsystem, state-of-the-art lights and 18 speakers dotted about the room.
"We've been crafting this for nearly three years now," says cofounder Jeremy Duffy. "The lockdown has been tough for many and we're happy we can provide a new space for the neighbourhood. When we talk about a cultural venue, it's not about having high-brow art or the latest trend… It's about exploring the things people can enjoy together, making memories and sharing moments... We wanted to create an atmosphere where people can indulge in something other than a distraction."
By day, Faith In Strangers will double up as a co-working space for freelancers. The cultural programme, including DJ lineups, will be revealed soon.
To help promote the launch, the team is offering one free ticket to everyone who signs up to the mailing list. Visit the website and check out some photos.
