The Brewery Tap UCA Project Space is a research hub, exhibition and project space in the Creative Quarter of Folkestone, Kent.

The Brewery Tap UCA Project Space can be booked for exhibitions lasting 1 – 2 weeks or creative/cultural events. The last week of the month is generally reserved for Testing Grounds at Last Fridays.  

Testing Grounds: is UCA’s commitment to providing UCA staff & students the opportunity to test, create, make and showcase their work & ideas with the local creative community; forging new creative, professional & community connections. The gallery space is situated in the heart of Folkestone’s Creative Quarter, boasts a large exhibition space with adjoining courtyard and is suitable for a range of exhibitions, screenings & events. We work in partnership with Last Friday’s Folkestone & a Student Curatorial Team to present UCA work for each month’s late night openings.
