Colourful way to help visitors discover a new side of Worthing
Released: Wednesday, 10 May 2017
Visitors to Worthing are being urged to try out something new in the the town this summer.
With more than four million tourists a year, the south coast borough is already one of the most popular places to be in Sussex.
In a drive to help those visitors do more during their stay, Adur & Worthing Councils have produced a new leaflet packed full of events and useful information.
Music festivals, farmers markets and top-notch theatre all feature in the seasonal showcase, which is a one-stop shop for everyone who wants to know what's going on in the Worthing.
Judy Fox, Visitor Experience & Marketing Officer of Adur & Worthing Councils' tourism team, said:
“There really is something for everyone and this guide will ensure visitors don't miss out on key events.”
“For those who haven't visited the area in a while, they may be in for a pleasant surprise - there is a growing number of quirky independent shops, a thriving arts and cultural scene and top quality cafes and restaurants.”
The colourful new events leaflet, which opens out to become an easy-to-read A3 size calendar, will be made available at various venues throughout the town in the coming weeks.
It features a range of events, including food and drink markets in the town centre; music festivals and shows; urban arts trails, such as Worthing Artists' Open Houses; and family friendly events, such as the children's parade.
Summer will also see an emphasis on sporting extravaganzas, with the StreetVelodrome, Beat The Tide and Worthing 10k among the headline events.
The Events Calendar also forms part of plans to boost tourism in Worthing and is part of the new Discover Worthing campaign to encourage new visitors to the town.
The leaflet, which also includes events in Adur, will be distributed into neighbouring areas as part of a wider plan by the Council to boost visitor numbers from those living within an hour and a half of the area.
It will also form part of the events section of the new Discover Worthing website, which is due to launch at the end of this month.
