SOUND – Sammy Clarke (Arts Cool, Elsewhere)

Co-founder of Margate music venue, Elsewhere, Sammy Clarke aka Art’s Cool started organising live music events in Margate 7 years ago for an audience that at the time could barely fill up a living room let alone a music venue. Fast Forward a few years and the Margate’s music scene has gone from strength to strength.

Always at the heart of who and what makes the musical ecology in Margate tick, Sammy will be curating and DJing a playlist made up of all of the Margate bands and musicians that Sammy has come across over the years of organising and promoting shows out of damp smelly basements, bowling alleys, living rooms, art theatres, venues and major entertainment complexes.


Discover the Turner Prize 2019 artists’ work in a whole new light as we transform our Foyle Rooms into a cinema, showcasing previous video works made by this year’s artists.

UK premiere of Once Removed – Lawrence Abu Hamdan
