Turner Contemporary events and exhibitions for Easer and April.

After my rather downbeat posts about their activities during this month I wondered what they had planed for April and especially to draw tourists to Margate over the Easter holiday.

The school holidays this year run for about two thirds of April, so a lot of people in the southeast will be looking for events and days out during April.

As I pointed out on Monday Thanet’s largest all weather attraction the Powell Cotton Museum (This museum receives no public or government money) has events for all ages on over Easter, so I was interested to see what the publicly funded Turner Contemporary gallery in the Droit House was doing for Margate over this critical period.

Nothing on their website so I rang them, the answer was nothing the Droit House is closed for the whole of April including Easter.

Frankly with art galleries up and down the country holding events for adults and children and hosting exhibitions all through April and Easter, I don’t really know what to make of this information.


  1. It's a shame they can't put Tracey's neon sign up earlier. That should bring them in by the thousands.

  2. I havent been out since before Christmas and fancied going down to the harbour arm to greet Caitlin and Co. but maybe not then cos I wanted to drop into Droit house

Playground stuff like calling real people by their time stamp or surname alone, referring to groups as gangs, old duffers and so on will result in deletion. Comment that may be construed as offensive to minority groups is not allowed here either, so think before you write it, remember that the internet is a public place, that it is very difficult to be truly anonymous and that everyone who uses it leaves a trail of some sort. Also note the facility to leave anonymous comment will be turned of during periods when I am unable to monitor comment, this will not affect people commenting who are signed on to their blogger accounts. When things are particularly difficult on the commercial spam front I may turn comment moderation on for periods.

If you feel that someone has left a comment that is offensive and directed at you personally please email me (link on the sidebar) asking to have it removed, you will need to tell which post and the date and timestamp of the offending comment. Please do not reply to the offending comment as I will assume you continuing the dialogue as meaning that you want the comments left there.
