A complete line up of the first ever group arts festival across Newhaven Town - August 18th - September 2nd
16 independently curated arts events plus 10 open houses - As regeneration money starts to pour into Newhaven, the Town Council have launched it’s own festival to highlight the talent and creative energy already in the town. Taking place during Artwave there are also 10 open house arts venues.
Keen to represent that which already exists, most events are by local residents. In response to this industrial town where people are often overlooked in favour of controversial industry such as the incinerator, Newhaveners show that the community is strong and committed. Newhaven’s secrets are revealed with walks, talks and experiences to lift the soul and entertain. Everyone is welcome.
This May over 200 artists’ homes and studios are opening their doors to exhibit work from over 1,000 artists and makers in Brighton and Hove, reaching from Portslade to Kemptown, out to Rottingdean, Newhaven and the South Downs village of Ditchling.
Here's a list of the Artists houses open in our area...
