Speaking about the Love Local Arts Programme, Chair of the Policy and Finance Committee, Councillor Alan Butcher, said: “After the success of previous Love Local Arts events, I am looking forward to this year’s programme. It will be great to see the High Street come to life with entertainment now that the public realm work in the precinct is near completion. The events give families a fantastic opportunity to enjoy a free day out during the summer holidays and support local businesses in the Town Centre. Make sure you visit our website for the full programme.”

Leader of Arun District Council, Cllr Matt Stanley said: “Supporting Littlehampton’s Love Local Arts event is some the council is very proud of. This week of events really showcases what a wonderful town Littlehampton is and the contribution that it makes to the district. Supporting our local high street and community and encouraging residents and visitors to take part in and enjoy the programme on offer is really important. “
