The outdoor cinema has a new home, at The Goods Yard, which is an open air area of the Harbour Arm which hosts a growing collection of independent traders with a wide variety of food and drink offers.

Entry to the site is completely free throughout, except for the England games at the Euros, when a ticketing system will be introduced to "ensure an enjoyable experience for all", bosses say.

For the England games, tables for up to four, five and six people will be available and will cost £10 per seat.

Tables will be allocated on arrival, so the team recommend arriving early to secure your spot.

For all the other games in the tournament entry is free and tables are available on a first come, first serve basis.

Tickets for the England group games (on June 13, 18 & 22) go on sale Wednesday, May 26 at 6pm.

Food and drink will be available through table service only from The Goods Yard.

Diane Dever, curator of Folkestone Harbour Arm, said: "The summer of 2021 promises to give us the sport we didn’t get in 2020.

"Alongside the major sporting events on the BBC and Sky, we’ll also have a season of films and live DJ sets for entertainment.

"The food traders are open already and offering some of the best food in Folkestone.

"The Goods Yard is nestled along the Eastside of the historic Folkestone Harbour Station.

"It’s sheltered and really comes into it’s own on the few occasions that high tides and wind make the Arm less hospitable.

"As the sun begins to shine it will be the best sun trap along this coastline of ours."

A new mini golf course opened along the arm earlier this year.

The Harbour Arm is also expecting to open its new venture, Beachside, next month.

This is a new al fresco dining experience - complete with palm trees - on the beach.
