Cliftonville Cultural Space


Cliftonville Voices is an oral history project and exhibition which documents how Cliftonville has changed over the past century, and how the diversity of its residents is what makes Northdown Road and the surrounding streets Thanet’s most vibrant and multicultural neighbourhood. 



Our interviewers have been meeting with residents over the past six months to record people’s thoughts and memories about what makes this part of Margate so special.



Designed by former Margate resident Arnold Schwartzman and Claire-Beth Gibson, the exhibition will be hosted both at Cliftonville Cultural Space (the former synagogue) in December as well as online.  There will also be an exhibition at the Margate Museum in spring 2023.

The dates and times are:


Friday 2nd, 9th, 16th December

4pm - 8pm;


Saturday 3rd, 10th, 17th December

2pm – 6pm;


Sunday 4th, 11th, 18th December

2pm – 6pm. 

If you would like to visit outside of these times or arrange a group visit, please get in touch with Katie Blythe.
