Postcards come to life

A bright street scene by artists Lawrence and Arron Hosannah, St Leonards-on-Sea, created Feb 2020

Local artists Lawrence and Arron Hosannah approached the St Leonards council with the idea for a mural on a large boring wall alongside the steps between London Road and Alfred Street. With permission obtained, they also received funding from the Arts Council and Hastings Borough Council. 

The artists used archive material from Hastings Museum and Art Gallery to research images for the mural, with the the postcard collection being particularly helpful.

    • I don’t know it very well but the pier looked great when I visited last year. Very well cared for. Would be interesting to see it in high season – I might not be such a fan then!
