In association with the Church & Dwight Ideas Factory

We're the best source of information about events in Folkestone.


Every week, Academy FM broadcasts 3 'Status' radio shows with interviews and information, and the 'Folkestone Guide' to local events every day. There's also a Folkestone Status Facebook Page which posts about local events.

Folkestone Status content is supported by the Church & Dwight Ideas Factory. Church & Dwight are an international company manufacturing a range of health & hygiene products, and they have several sites in Folkestone.  They started the 'Ideas Factory' to help make Folkestone a better place to live, work and visit by supporting selected local ideas - like the 'Status'.

You can hear the 'Status' radio shows on Weds 0900-1200, Friday 0900-1200, and Saturday 1000-1200. Our Folkestone Status Facebook Page carries positive news stories about our area, and a popular Weekend Roundup posts of local events.
