at HORSHAM PARK
In partnership with Friends of Horsham Park and Age UK, West Sussex, Brighton & Hove, Whistlestop Arts secured Covid-19 recovery funding from Sussex Community Partnership.
The funding has enabled us to research, design and create a Virtual Day Trip focusing on Horsham Park. The main aim is to highlight Covid-19 safe spaces, accessible to all, that encourage residents and visitors to explore Horsham Park and the wider area.
The day trip sessions are based around a bespoke film that we made and include interviews with a wide variety of people connected to the Park. It showcases the many fascinating areas within it; such as the Sensory Garden, Tree Trail, Kaya Café, Pavilions and the Bowls Club, a wealth of diverse opportunities that are available to visitors.

We have been busy delivering Day Trip sessions to small groups of people in Covid-19 safe venues to give participants an immersive experience that increases confidence and connects them to their communities.
As well as these sessions we have put together a mini version for you to enjoy at home, from film clips to our podcast and craft activities.
If you are an organiser of activities in a day centre, care home or similar and would like to use the full set of resources to take your participants on a Virtual Day Trip of Horsham Park please get in touch with us via the CONTACT page to get details of how to download our FREE resource pack.
