Colonnade House, an affordable workspace for creative businesses is almost fully occupied.

Located in the heart of Worthing, the space has ten rooms to rent, spanning three floors, along with a gallery on the ground floor and event space for exhibitions, networking, training and other events.

Built in the early 1800s and going on to become a library, then a post office, the iconic building was partially destroyed by fire eighty years later and remodelled in the 1930s. Now Colonnade House is a unique creative workspace and hub that fosters cross-disciplinary inspiration and collaboration.

The regeneration and ongoing management of Colonnade House has been made possible by Worthing Borough Council working in partnership with the Adur & Worthing Trust and has received significant investment from the Department for Communities and Local Government’s Coastal Communities Fund.

Adur & Worthing Councils, of which the Coastal West Sussex Partnership are part of, are committed to developing a high-quality cultural offer which puts this beautiful stretch of the south coast firmly on the cultural map and have worked with the local arts community to develop the ‘Commit to Culture’ strategy – Colonnade House is a significant step in this process.
