    Art on the Prom 2019 Felixstowe


    A FEAST FOR THE ARTS!

    Now in its 16th year, the amazing Art on the Prom will take place from 10 am to 4.30 pm on Sunday 1st September.  At this free event, more than 100 artists will showcase their work on Felixstowe promenade from the Pier to the Spa Gardens.  The work – some purely on display and many items for sale – will vary incredibly and will feature glass, ceramics, metalwork, willow work, painting and all sorts of other media.  As in previous years, there are “have-a-go” activities for all age groups.

    To complement the art displays, there will be vibrant musical entertainment and a range of refreshment stalls. 

    As in previous years, Jackamans has sponsored a schools’ project, and this year local willow artist Tracy Barritt-Brown – the creator of the Spa Garden’s willow family – has been working with pupils from local primary schools, Causton Junior, Langer and Colneis, transforming single-use plastic items into an underwater world of coral, sea plants and sea creatures.  The items will surround a large plastic octopus that she has created which will be on permanent display at Felixstowe Ferry after the event.

    Nichola Adams, Art on the Prom organiser explains "Art on the Prom has grown into a really special, local tradition. It really is democratising art - anyone can apply, anyone can visit and we want to keep it that way. It's brilliant to have the schools involved so that everyone can feel a part of the day and it's a great way to use our beautiful prom and show off what Felixstowe has to offer.  It's another one of the town's amazing events run entirely voluntarily, so it's a great way of bringing the community together.  Our sincere thanks go to Jackamans Solicitors, and our other corporate sponsors, for helping to make this happen."

    The Jackamans double stand will be virtually opposite The Alex again and this year the theme is Mary Poppins!  Do come along and “ave a jolly oliday with Mary”.
