Local collections

Our Local Collection cabinets are in our Sadler Gallery and feature artefacts, collections and exhibitions that we think are really interesting. They all relate to local history, have been owned by a local resident or friend of The Spring, or are linked to an area of our work.

If you have a collection or artefacts that you think our visitors may be interested in please contact Kate Saunders, Participation and Heritage Manager, on


Friday 29 April – Friday 29 July

The shores of Langstone and Chichester Harbours provide rich pickings for local beachcomber Becky Dunn who collects all sorts of flotsam and jetsam to create unique sculptures. In this exhibition Becky displays a series of 2D and 3D sculptures created using discarded manmade materials, which are usually brightly coloured and non-degradable. The title is a reference to the impact on nature and the environment of our throwaway society.

For further information about the Heritage Centre and our services or to book appointments or workshops please contact our Heritage Manager Kate Saunders on 023 9224 9063 or email
