Your Community


During the year the team of community volunteers that organise and run Tide of Light work harder than ever, forging wonderful new relationships with community groups, youth groups and schools bringing a timetable of community arts workshops throughout the year focusing on recycling.



One our favourite jobs is making lovely things out of reclaimed waste. So what better way to be part of the action than be at some of our area’s best festivals? This year we will bring our pop up crafting action to:

 PRIDE – 13 July  

Rotary Carnival – 25 and 26 August 

Green Dreams – 29 September  

Pumpkin Picking Patch – in residence over October Half Term 

Come and join us – we are always looking for volunteers 



Kids council is our team of young people who are helping us to shape the event for this year and into the future. The Kids Council meets once a term for 2 hours in an evening, locally in Worthing. We usually do an educational or arts activity together and then start brainstorming ideas about the event which takes place in November. This group will also be helping to make a giant structure with the New Carnival Company for the parade in November. For more info see KIDS COUNCIL



This year we are working with 4 local Community organisations with some expert artists to build something amazing, together. Find out more about the BIG MAKE

This time of year we would be getting ready for our school workshops ahead of the lantern parade in November but for obvious reasons these will not be going ahead. The Parade in November takes a year in the planning and because of the uncertainty about the pandemic we have been unable to make plans. We're going to miss you this Autumn, Stay well and safe!
