Making Better Places

Building on the strengths and qualities of Gosport town centre’s social, cultural and natural capital is what this project is all about.

Involving local people in activities and actions that make the town centre a more invigorating and vibrant place to live, work and play.

International carnival artists Shademakers are working with local schools and community groups to develop a large outdoor event to take place in Gosport town centre in summer 2022.

We are also working with local ex-submariners to gather their stories and reminiscences as part of a unique oral history project celebrating a part of Gosport’s Naval heritage. The stories are available here

Where are we now?

The visit from Farrah Fox to Gosport High Street as part of Hi! Fest, was very successful in July 2023 and this has inspired more cultural events to be planned for summer 2024.
