Whitstable Horsebridge Centre 10th year celebration

03 April 2014
by KentOnline reporter

It is 10 years since one of the county’s most distinctive arts venues opened on the site of an old gallery. Whitstable’s Horsebridge Centre is unlike any other building in Kent with it’s design based on an upturned boat.

It replaced the previously much-loved but less fit for purpose Johnny’s Arthouse and, since its opening in 2004, has been used not only as a gallery but as a venue for performances, comedy, films, classes and workshops.
