Littlehampton LOVE Local Arts events end this weekend

The fifth and final LOVE Local Arts event in Littlehampton is happening this Saturday (August 28).

Tuesday, 24th August 2021, 1:57 pm

From July 31, the LOVE Local Arts events have seen Littlehampton come together for free family fun in the High Street.

Last weekend saw people create a giant mural for the town centre, and children enjoyed getting creative with chalk the weekend before – click here to see pictures from the events.

Littlehampton mayor Michelle Molloy said she and her family had fun joining in with the mural creation last weekend. She added: “I had a fabulous time learning about using spray paint in a safe and non-damaging way.

“UCanSpray explained how they have done lots of work with young people to educate them on spraying safely.

“They encourage the use of different media such as old vinyl records instead of walls and for permission to be sought before spraying an area.

“My family and I had fun joining in with other participants and being part of the mural creation.

“The final instalment of the LOVE Local Arts events is next weekend and I urge people to come along to the High Street and enjoy the free entertainment.”

“With a playful invitation and ceremonial tone, this unique instrument will create many memorable moments of togetherness on
