After its huge success in 2015 and 2016, The Folkestone Living Advent Calendar is back!


JimJam Arts' 24 day festival of music, drama, dance, opera, storytelling,puppetry and fun starts on December 1st and runs every night to December 24th.


How it works

Each evening at 6pm a different, beautifully decorated door in the town will open to reveal a surprise live performance. Every performance is different and every one is free! Sometimes we might have an extra treat in store for you, too, and we're also collecting for some very worthwhile local charities.


You'll find there's something for everyone, young and old. Just click on each door to get a hint about each night's performance here.



JimJam Arts


JimJam Arts is a theatre and events company run by Sadie Hurley and Sue Blakesley.  Based in Folkestone, Kent, we are passionate about theatre and the arts and making them accessible to everyone. We strive to not only entertain our audiences, but inspire and involve them in all our projects. We started back in 2010 by creating the popular Alice in the Coastal Park and Pirate Party in the Park events and continued with other community events and workshops including The Word on the Street Drama and Playwriting project and the Happiness Bank.


The Folkestone Living Advent Calendar is our biggest project yet and after its huge success since 2015, it looks as though it's already establishing itself as a much loved Folkestone tradition!
