Arts, Training, Festivals

KATFM CIC owns and manages KATFM Learning Centre,  Ashford Arts Centre and Ashford Fringe Festival, three of the most vibrant, grassroots arts and learning projects in Kent.
Ashford Arts Centre is the first and only dedicated Community Centre for the Creative and Performing Arts in Ashford. The centre provides  creative spaces for freelance professionals in the arts as well as access to affordable training and experiences in the arts for members of the community.
Ashford Fringe Festival is the largest arts festival in Ashford. It’s a celebration of the wide and varied arts-based activities taking place year-round in the arts centre and invites speakers and entertainers from across the nation to perform and inform.

You can join our Basic Member Club which includes weekly piano and/or singing lessons and choir membership (some choirs are by audition).  To become a member of the arts centre, you must fill out an application, sign a media release form and set up a direct debit through our website.
