Raising the Curtain on Chichester

Let’s rediscover and celebrate the people, places and passions of Chichester

We are so lucky to have a city centre that offers so much – from its rich culture and heritage to its eclectic mix of high street and indie retail and personal wellbeing experiences. Not forgetting the vibrant art scene, café culture and stunning green spaces we have here.

As businesses prepare to reopen after a very challenging few months, our city centre needs your support more than ever before.

To help you rediscover our beautiful city we’ve launched a new campaign to celebrate the people, places and passions which make Chichester so special.

Under These Masks We are Smiling

From the theatre makers, office workers and retailers to the entrepreneurs, chefs, artists, yardies and landlords, we will be shining a spotlight on the people that make our city the vibrant, creative and welcoming centre that we all love.

Look out for our social media posts featuring many of our city’s characters.

Rediscover Chichester

We will be launching new discovery trails on our free downloadable app LoyalFree. Trails include an exploration of Chichester Street Art, a Chichester culture and heritage trail and a guide to the city’s green spaces and alfresco dining options.

Give your city a standing ovation

Chichester wouldn’t be what it is today without you – the residents, visitors and workers that keep our city thriving. Help give your city a standing ovation on social media and share what you love about Chichester to win prizes.

Share photos, poems, stories or paintings featuring the city centre on Facebook or Instagram and be entered into a prize draw to win one of three £50 Chichester Gift Cards. Open to all ages, to take part just tag us in your post and use #RediscoverChichester.

Closing date 21st June 2021.

Love Local

To mark the much-anticipated reopening, the city will be decorated with ‘Love Local’ bunting to create a colourful, fun and welcoming atmosphere for visitors venturing back into the city centre.

The bunting also sends an important reminder to shop local, support local and enjoy local.
