Art show will light up Worthing beach at night

Released: Thursday, 07 September 2017

Hundreds of people are set to flock to Worthing beach this weekend to take in an exhibition that will light up the seafront (midday Friday 8th to midday Sunday 10th September 2017)

From Friday through to Sunday, the East Beach Artists Collective, with support from Worthing Borough Council, will host the 2017 Worthing Light Festival.

Featuring an exhibition of sustainable art installations, visitors are being invited to head to the foreshore to take in the family-friendly exhibition on a self-guided promenade.

Organisers said the 48-hour show will be particularly poignant after dark, when the light festival will brighten up the night sky.

Councillor Alex Harman, Mayor of Worthing, who is one of the five judges for the event, said:

“I'm looking forward to going down and seeing all the exhibits for this unique and very special event.”

“It's always great to have an event on the seafront, drawing in hundreds of people to a very special part of our coast. Fingers crossed the weather will hold out for us.”

The exhibition will take place at East Beach, near Splashpoint leisure centre, from midday on Friday through to midday on Sunday.

All the artwork has been created by local artists and designers with two categories: over and under 16 years of age, with the best installation in each category will receive £100 each.
