Honorary Freewoman of Margate

The Margate Charter Trustees conferred Tracey Emin with the title of Honorary Freewoman of Margate on Friday 12 August

Ms Emin received the honour in recognition of her international acclaim as an artist and her investment in the cultural and physical environment of Margate.

This is the first time that the Charter Trustees have conferred the honour and Ms Emin is only the fourth woman ever to receive this honour in Margate. The three previous recipients were honoured by the Borough of Margate.

The ceremony took place at Ms Emin’s studio in Union Crescent, Margate, and was attended by Ms Emin, The Worshipful the Town Mayor of Margate Cllr Heather Keen; Cllr Rob Yates, Deputy Mayor; Mrs Iris Johnston, Burgess of Margate and past Mayor of Margate; Cllr Mick Tomlinson, Burgess of Margate and past Mayor of Margate and Cllr Ash Ashbee, Leader of Thanet District Council and Mrs Shirley Tomlinson past mayoress.

Cllr Heather Keen, Mayor of Margate said: “The Margate Charter Trustees really wanted to recognise Tracey’s contributions to the town, both for her artistic and philanthropic work. Tracey has spoken openly about returning to Margate and making it her home, and this seemed like a fitting honour, borne from an original suggestion by Cllr Mick Tomlinson. Today is extra special for us as it marks the first time that we have bestowed the title of Honorary Freewoman in the 50 year history of the Margate Charter Trustees.”
