50 Years: A Celebration of Old Shoreham

In celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Old Shoreham Conservation Area. The Friends of Old Shoreham (FOldS) group together with the Friends of St Nicolas Church are developing an art exhibition and map to celebrate the half century milestone.


Old Shoreham is the largest part and historic heart of Shoreham-by-Sea. Post war urbanisation means that a substantial portion of the community now lives in the area, but much contemporary artwork and iconography focuses on the southern part of the town.

Routes Networks Connections – An Art Exhibition celebrating Old Shoreham’s heritage, conservation and community.

From 6 to 15 September there will be a multi-media and multi-generational art exhibition in the historic setting of St Nicolas Church in Old Shoreham. The exhibition follows the theme of “Routes, Networks and Connections” promoted by the National Heritage Open Days. The project involves both amateur and professional artists and local school children who are all invited to take part. A new map of inspiration points will help ensure that key elements of Old Shoreham are covered and celebrated. It is hoped to display a diverse group of artists and their original work in this magnificent building and visitors will be able to enjoy and discover what is special about this area and our community.

Further details will be available from early June.
