        Turner Prize 2019

        “This is an amazing moment for Thanet. The district has one of the most vibrant art scenes in the UK and hosting this prestigious prize strengthens Margate’s reputation as a cultural powerhouse.

        J.M.W Turner was a regular visitor, producing a number of works of Margate and declaring that the skies over Thanet are the loveliest in all Europe so it really feels like the Prize is ‘coming home’.”

        Leader, Cllr Bob Bayford
