On the final day of the 2017 festival, we presented Macmillan Cancer Support with £13148, the monies raised from the garden trail in July, private visits to Driftwood and the raffle and tea and coffee proceeds form Artwave 2017.
Lovely comment from a visitor by e mail on Bank Holiday Monday! "Your garden is an amazing base for Artwave. We went to a few others and none came near in atmosphere or popularity."
We use the garden at Driftwood, which has appeared on BBC Gardeners' World last Autumn 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 65 excellent reviews.

The 2018 selected artists will appear below as selected.
|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!|
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.
