Supporting South East Dance exhibition

As part of our mission to help support the arts, we are delighted to have been involved with an exhibition held at the Onca Gallery, Brighton.

The Sussex Sign Company designed, in collaboration with South East Dance, the window graphics and the information displays for ‘Hawkers Pick Over Fruit Here’. Working alongside artists Becky Edmunds (Straybird), and Zoe Manders, we are delighted with the completed designs. The Exhibition includes photography and film and ran for one week. The Circus Street Market Hall is due to be demolished this year, and with it disappears ways of working that have sustained several generations of Brighton-based families. straybird artists – Becky Edmunds and Lucy Cash – and photographer Zoe Manders invited members of these families – grandfathers, fathers and sons – who worked at the Market, to attempt to describe what the site looked like, sounded like and felt like at the height of its working life. The resulting exhibition uncovers the patterns and rhythms of this way of life and celebrates the communities that once inhabited the space as we look towards its future use as a space for dance. Traders cam from all over the home counties, including London and Croydon. As part of Brighton’s Cine-City Festival 2015, ONCA will be hosting an installation of still and moving images: Hawkers Pick Over Fruit Here. Commissioned by South East Dance. Supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England. Based on an original concept by Lauren Proto and Zoe Manders.

Farmer Vents Frustration Over Signage Ruling

A farmer in Lathom, Lancashire, has spoken out after planning officials rejected an appeal to install advertising signs on a stretch of Green Belt land.

Roger Webster erected three signs on private land near Hall Lane in Lathom. Each sign was affixed to a five-metre-high poll and advertised his retail business, Taylors Farm Shop. Mr Webster received a letter from the council informing him that the signs had to be removed because planning permission had not been granted. The farmer and shop owner subsequently applied for planning permission, but his application was rejected.

Planning officials cited the “excessive number, height and design” of the signs, which were deemed to have a “negative impact upon the visual appearance of this part of the Green Belt.”

Arguing that every business ought to have the right to advertise its services on private land, Mr Webster appealed the decision, but the council refused to change its position.

Mr Webster said: “I just think it’s a bit of a joke. There have been complaints about the garage too, but the council have decided their signs are OK.”

Here at The Sussex Sign Company, we sympathise with Mr Webster. Advertising is necessary for all businesses and roadside signage provides an effective means of communicating with potential customers.
