eight squared

Gallery space for hire
In the heart of Folkestone's Creative Quarter

eight squared gallery is a small but perfectly formed gallery space which is available for artists and makers to hire on a fortnightly basis to display their work to the public.  We are located at the bottom end of the picturesque, cobbled Old High Street in the heart of the Creative Quarter of Folkestone.  

The gallery has around 8 square metres of wall hanging space, and staging and shelving that would suit pottery or small sculptures.  It could also work for jewellers and accessory makers.

The gallery shares a kitchen and bathroom but can be locked as an independent unit.

From March 2023 our larger space Gallery 66 will also be available for pop up rental. This is a larger gallery with more wall hanging space for artists who have bigger canvasses or for artist groups. Gallery 66 also shares the kitchen and bathroom, but can be locked separately.
