Started back in 2015, the Ramsgate Book & Art Festival was a low key affair, until in 2017 a crazy group of local book and art enthusiasts got together and decided to take on the challenge of bringing the Festival to life in its new format. Now in 2018, more locals have hopped on board to make the festival even better than previously.
The management team is made up of Peter Kilian, Chair of the local Tourism Committee, together with Barbie Meyer, Pauline Lee, and Natascha Muller.
