Lovely comment from a 2017 visitor"Your garden is an amazing base for Artwave. We went to a few others and none came near in atmosphere or popularity."
The 2018 festival takes place on Saturday 18th, Sunday 19th, Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th August and Saturday 1st and Sunday 2nd September, we will not open on Bank Holiday Monday 27th August.There will be a grand raffle of artist donated work raising money for Macmillan Cancer Support.
Check out the raffle listing on the Macmillan Cancer Support website, here, too.
We use the garden at Driftwood, which has appeared on BBC Gardeners' World and was a finalist in Gardeners' World Magazine in the Garden of the Year Awards 2016, as the back drop to display art, ceramics and sculpture at their very best. In 2017 the garden was awarded a Certificate of Excellence by Trip Advisor, with over 70 excellent reviews.

|All proceeds go to Macmillan Cancer Support. Since we first started raising money at Artwave for them in 2011, we have raised over £10000. This was achieved by asking for donations from those who had enjoyed looking around the garden and running a grand raffle with great prizes donated by the artists themselves. In addition to this, through the Driftwood Fundraising Group, a figure of £44000 from the Macmillan Coastal Garden Trail totalling over £54000 for the new Macmillan Horizon Centre in Brighton in 8 years with other events in the garden!|
Below are the prizes donated by generous artists and others for the 2018 raffle.
Visitors are able to take tea on the beach garden at the front of the house with stunning views of the sea, or sat amongst the sumptuous planting and the art at the rear of the house.
