Calling all families! We’ve got together with five of our neighbouring culture and heritage organisations in Chichester – Chichester Canal, Chichester Cathedral, Graylingwell Chapel, The Novium Museum and Pallant House Gallery – to launch a Family Arts Network. Put simply, we all want to make the range of family-friendly activities and experiences in the city even better.

Jessica Blake-Lobb, one of our Marketing Managers, says: ‘Chichester is bursting with family friendly activities and places to explore, and we want to encourage more families to enjoy everything our city has to offer, and to play and have fun.

‘By creating our FAN network and working together, we hope to introduce our own family audiences to the brilliant opportunities organised by our fellow partner organisations.’

All our six venues are pledged to the Family Arts Standards, a national accreditation scheme for organisations committed to providing excellent family experiences.

The Chichester Family Arts Network joins 12 other FANs across the country, from Cumbria to Bristol, all focussing on specific regional knowledge and sharing insights, resources and skills.
