The Secret Garden Kemp Town
The Secret Garden, a registered UK charity, run by the Antony Dale Trust, is a unique facility for Brighton & Hove. It is the only garden of its type in the city, and the only place where major outdoor works of sculpture can be shown in a secure setting.
The Secret Garden originally belonged to no 32 Sussex Square which was bought by its first owner, Laurence Peel, younger brother of the Prime Minister, in 1830. Several of the grand houses in the square had extensive gardens, each of which was accessed through a tunnel leading from the appropriate house. The Secret Garden is now the only remaining one of these. It is a ‘secret’ oasis, because it is a delightful walled garden hidden from view, in the midst of suburban Kemp Town. Originally a 'pleasure garden', it led to a kitchen garden beyond.
ProjectSpotter run the year-round publicity and social media for the Secret Garden, including Mailchimp newsletters, Twitter and Facebook, as well as design and management of the Secret Garden website.
For May 2019, The Secret Garden are hosting a major exhibition, 'William Pye: Sculpting with Water'. ProjectSpotter were delighted to oversee the project management, marketing, social media, web design and video production for the website. We also oversaw the production of the exhibition catalogue, including photography of the exhibition in situ.
