Festival of Cats started as a satellite event for Turner Contemporary's "Journeys with The Waste Land" exhibition in 2018. Born from a love of T.S.Eliot's “Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats' and much like the book, the festival celebrates the psychology, sociology and whimsy of cats.

Festival of Cats is now a Thanet wide festival with 1000's of visitors. The full festival takes place every two years with pop up events in between.

We are currently accepting submissions for our April 2024 exhibition - apply here:
