Pop Up on the Pier

We have transformed Worthing pier with colourful rainbows and two new exhibitions celebrating Worthing's seaside heritage.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The exhibitions are part of our Heritage Lottery funded community project Pop Up on the Prom, which focusses on and celebrates the last 200 years

of Worthing's promenade.

 

Local school children have been learning about their town's history through interactive research workshops at Worthing Museum.

 

Working with Creative Waves the children have produced brilliant illustrations for the pier which tell the story of Worthing's promenade.

 

Volunteers have been researching the social history and the seafront developments through photographic archives and editorials in Worthing's Museum and West Sussex County Library Service.

 

We are thrilled and very proud to install the new artwork on the pier. We are delighted that we can share our research to visitors and the wider community in such in an interesting, visual way.

We would like to thank all our great volunteers; the children for their fantastic artwork and all our sponsors who have supported us, and Worthing Borough Council for enabling us to extend the rainbow and make our beautiful pier more eye

catching.

 

If you would like to be involved in Pop Up on the Prom, please get in touch, we would

love to see your old photos and hear your memories that capture Worthing in the past. See our Pop Up project page for more info.
