The fourteenth annual Art on the Prom will take place on Sunday September 3rd from 10am-4.30pm on the sea front running from the fabulous new pier to the Spa Gardens. The layout is expected to be the same as in the last two years, using the approach road to the Spa Theatre for entertainment and some art stalls and bringing the art activity tents into the heart of the event.
