There has been a re-organisation of the area divisions for South East Open Studios 2021, which means BETTER PUBLICITY VISIBILITY FOR FOREST ROW, as well as EAST GRINSTEAD and IMMEDIATE SURROUNDS as we are now part of the Tunbridge Wells (O) area. This is a great opportunity for us, as local Forest Row artists: the greater the number taking part, the more visitors we can attract. Strength in numbers! 

SEOS is a fantastic opportunity to open the doors of your studio and meet people who are interested in you and your work. Now in its 24th year, with more than 200 artists taking part, SEOS is one of the most established annual arts events in the South East. It is a 17-day event and joining gives you membership for a whole year. This year the live event will run alongside an on-line event, which proved a great success last spring/summer. Registration closes on 28 February. Further information on or contact the TW Area Coordinator Claudia Wiegand e-mail: for more specific/local information; e.g. she can liaise between artists who need shared venues and those who can offer their studio space to share with others, she can also add you to the TW area distribution list and keep you in the loop for future info.
