Colonnade House is the place to be in Worthing for local art. We’re open all month long with a bunch of creative exhibitions to inspire you as you enjoy #SummerinWorthing.

hello DODO land
Exhibition // Until 8 August // 10.00 – 17.00 daily (Closed Monday 2nd)

The Dodo’s have landed with their latest colourful collections and tongue-in-cheek tag lines and can’t quite believe that they are celebrating their first 10 years! So whether you’re ready to Get Lost or you want to Keep on Raven, remember this is a Worthing Thing driven by Gull Powerso look no further for upcycled fashion, pins, patches, posters and original style.


Marina Leddy: Shapes of Immancence
Exhibition // 10 – 21 August // 10.00 – 17.00 (Closed Sunday & Monday)

I looked up the meaning of immanence in the Collins dictionary: If you say that a quality is immanent in a particular thing, you mean that the thing has that quality, and cannot exist or be imagined without it. Marina uses colour and shape for the joy of it, creating work that evades description and definition but which she hopes will resonate with the viewer in unexpected ways. 


Persistent Peril x One Bum Cinema Club: STALKER
Exhibition // 10 – 21 August // 10.00 – 17.00 (Closed Sunday & Monday)

Take your seat for a FREE screening of the latest short film by Colonnade House residents Persistent Peril. Actually, there is only one seat, because this is the smallest cinema you will ever visit. Stalker is a story of a man who follows a trail of deer prints in the snow – but things are not as they seem. The film will be on show all day, so if there’s a queue you won’t be waiting long to find out what happens next…


Exhibition // 24 August – 4 September // 10.00 – 17.00 (Closed Sunday & Monday)

Artist, illustrator and author John Bond is just a little bit obsessed with drawing dogs, and his latest project Dogs in Disguise will be full of fun. If you’re quick you can get your hands on a signed copy before the official publication date, along with copies of the already published Mini Rabbit books, plus his popular cards and prints. 

Alice Mara: Lancing Story Buildings
Exhibition // Launcing 4 August // 17.00 – 19.00 // Brooklands Park, next to Bird Box Cafe

Ceramicist Alice Mara has created four miniature buildings that celebrate favourite places in Lancing. Placing them around Brooklands Park, they are designed to be discovered by people walking and playing in park, but if you want to know more, join Alice for a free walk and talk, either at the launch on 4 August, or on 4 September. The buildings will stay until the next stage of the park re-development later this year.

MoonInk: 33 Tanka Sketches of Adur & Worthing
Exhibition // 2 August – 3 October // West Buildings Shelter // Worthing Seafront

Placing poetry in unexpected places can bring a moment of peace to the person who finds and reads it, but equally, writing it is therapeutic for the poet. Tanka poetry is a very accessible artform and Lee and Tana from MoonInk want you to both enjoy the poetry that they have left for you to discover, and write your own. Find out more about their project by visiting the exhibition and if you feel inspired you could submit your work to their anthology.
