Artspace on the Prom will open again in April, for a second exciting season of exhibitions.

Last year more than 10,000 visitors went along to the venue’s varied shows, including those who popped up from the beach and those who travelled just to see the exhibitions. Some even visited every show.

There is a busy season planned for 2023, opening on April 12 with Perspective – a presentation of work from a group of BA Fine Art students from Norwich University of the Arts.

April 24 sees the start of the Secret Auction, with bidders making offers for artworks by a range of artists, from local names to some famous international faces.

The artists will be listed at the gallery and online but you will not know who created your winning lot until you collect it.

“We are most grateful to artists from Norfolk and beyond for their generous support,” said Artspace’s Ruth Brumby. “The auction is particularly important to us this year as we have been very keen to install an access ramp as soon as possible.”

A grant from the Norfolk Coast Partnership had helped, but they still need a further £5,000.

Money from the auction will help to get it installed for the summer season.

The auction show Ta Dah! (We’re Back) will be on until May 13, and will include all the works donated.

You can bid online at or at Artspace on the Prom until 9pm on May 13.
