Colonnade House supports the growth of the creative industries in Worthing by offering affordable work space and gallery space in the heart of the town.
The Main Gallery and Studio Gallery on the ground floor are available for hire for exhibitions and we periodically make them available for other kinds of events – short term projects, hourly hire for meetings or workshops, professional development events and networking.
Our aim as a Creative Hub is to provide a platform for high quality and innovative work by local practitioners, and to showcase new practice from the wider world, fostering cross-disciplinary inspiration and collaboration.
There are two ground floor spaces for hire: the Main Gallery (approx 348 sq ft) and the Studio (approx 46 sq ft). Occupying a prominent corner location, the sweeping curve of the Main Gallery window commands attention from all directions in this busy town centre area. The Studio Gallery, ideal for smaller scale exhibitions and projects looks onto pedestrianised Warwick Street where the large window attracts passers-by.
Both galleries are equipped with professional lighting and hanging systems with a range of options for staffing, publicity and other support. Hire rates start at £10 per hour with discounts for hire by the day, week or month.
As well as exhibitions you might also want to hire the ground floor spaces for a book or product launch, a meeting, workshop or training event, or you may be applying for funding for a project that includes use of the galleries at Colonnade House.
Whatever your idea, we would love to talk to you so please contact the Creative Hub Manager firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss availability and costs.
We are aiming for a mixed programme of activity in the ground floor spaces, and reserve the right to refuse applications for hire for events or exhibitions that do not make a positive contribution to the reputation of the hub for reasons of quality, taste or decency.
