Beeching Road Studios is an exciting new cultural hub in Bexhill, 10 minutes walk from the De La Warr Pavilion.

Comprising a gallery space – Flatland Projects – and units for artists and makers to rent, Beeching Road Studios aims to provide accessible working spaces for those in the creative industries as well as spaces for training, skills development and collaboration. The studio project is key to supporting local regeneration through the development of the creative sector in Bexhill.

Flatland Projects is an artist-led exhibition space, education, and community programme founded in 2018 by artists Ben Urban and  Billy Stanley in Hastings, East Sussex. It moved to Beeching Road Studios in late 2021 and manages its creative programmes which includes the innovative Early Careers Programme.  Flatland’s core focuses are to support artists of an emerging stage of practice to reach new audiences, access funding, and to create collaborative ambitious projects with artists for the first time in their career.
