THIS year’s Adur Art Trail, which runs alongside Adur Festival, is promising to be better than ever.

With more than 80 artists taking part, there will be lots of opportunities to see and buy all kinds of artwork, including painting, photography, textiles, ceramics, stained glass, sculpture and even robots.

Apart from being able to revel in the great art, the art trail offers the chance to visit a wide range of diverse venues, such as churches, cafés, studios, houses, houseboats and a beach hut.

The first venue is Southwick Christian Community Church, which is also offering a variety of activities over the two weeks. The trail then moves west into Shoreham via Adur Civic Centre and The Old School House in Ham Road.

There are lots of venues in Shoreham, including Ropetackle Arts Centre and two venues in Old Shoreham Road, then a further group of venues on Shoreham Beach.

To find your way, as well as the map in the Art Trail Guide (which can be picked up from libraries, shops, pubs, cafés and other strategic points around the area), there is a Walking Trail which can be downloaded from the art trail website.

The art trail also offers workshops exploring textiles, candle making, pottery, glass, printing, watercolour and a Sketch Crawl around Shoreham. If that wasn’t enough, there will be three talks during the trail on women artists and the controversial subject of modern art.

Pick up a guide and look out for the banners and bunting. Visit for more information.
