Sign up for Artwave Open House Festival

HOW WOULD you like to open up your house to the public so they can see your art work?

Applications for this year’s Artwave Open House Festival to show off your talent are being accepted now.

The annual event will run across Lewes District from Saturday August 27 until Sunday September 11.

The Artwave office welcomes applications from individuals and groups wishing to open a studio, living room, conservatory, gallery, garage, garden, smoke house, mill house, tea room, and pretty much any other accessible space suitable for visitors to experience art and craft.

Artwave is coordinated by Lewes District Council and is a not for profit visual arts festival which promotes local art and creativity by encouraging professional and amateur artists and craftsmen to showcase their work.

To take part or for more information contact the tourism and economic development department on 01273 484497, email: or visit

Entry forms need to be returned by Friday April 15 and all events must be within the Lewes District.

Artwave began in the 1980s as an art trail in Lewes town and now covers the whole of the district, including Seaford and Newhaven.
