Terminus Road Art Expo

Terminus Road Art Expo
2nd event proposed for Sat 10th Nov - further details as known!


Another new venture for Eastbourne is an outdoor Art Expo. The event will be held on the pedestrianised section of Terminus Road between Debenhams and TJ Hughes a week from today on Saturday the 25th August. So far over twenty local artists and photographers have signed up and will be exhibiting and selling their work on the street. I'm imagining something along the lines of Bayswater Road in London!

I've been given a great long list of the artists and am happy to see some previous bloggees among them as well as many new names to discover: Kay Warner, Tania Long, Jane Hay, Jan Mirisola Jones, Angela Osmond, Mary Beany, Anne Barrell, Angela Haywood, Gill Hamper, Jasmin Stringer, Sonya Tatham, Adrian Bowd, Jeni Townsend, Julie Snowball, Louise Jones, Lucinda Guy, Andy Butler, Darren Coldwell, Gillian Toft, Simon Swift, Jeremy Strong and Will Gudgeon. Wow!

Terminus Road Art Expo
The Expo has been organised by The Secret Garden, with the aid of the Council who they say have been fantastically helpful. They are hoping it will be the first of a series of events promoting local business, leisure and culture. The Secret Garden guys are also heavily involved with the weekly Street Market and seem to be fast turning this area of Eastbourne into a vibrant Continental-style plaza. If you haven't yet visited, the Market is on Wednesdays from 09:30 to 14:00 at the seafront end of Terminus Road. Yes, I'm stuck at work then too but have heard great things about it from people who have gone - apparently the olives taste amazing!

There is still room for more artists to get involved with the Expo so, if you would like to showcase your work, please get in touch with Tim or Caroline at The Secret Garden asap on 01323 640931 or email to
