A seaside town is bracing itself for a gold-rush after a German artist buried £10,000 worth of bullion on a beach as part of an arts festival. Michael Sailstorfer has hidden thirty 24-carat gold bars on Folkestone’s Outer Harbour beach. People are being encouraged to dig for the gold after low tide at 16:00 BST. Organisers say fortune hunters will be able to keep any bars they find. The Folkestone Digs project is part of the town’s triennial arts festival. The event, which takes place every three years and runs from 30 August to 2 November, will also feature work by Yoko Ono.
