Combining the inspiring and contemporary environment of  an acclaimed art gallery within the stylish surrounds of a modern building, Towner is the perfect venue to host an event.

Situated in the cultural heart of Eastbourne, the Devonshire Quarter, Towner is nestled between the town’s magnificent seafront and the  green, rolling South Downs. The gallery is just a 10 minute walk from the train station and is also easily accessible by car, bus and foot.

Enjoy your event in a building that welcomes guests with a beautiful new exterior wall mural by internationally acclaimed artist Lothar Götz –  his largest and most ambitious work to date and recently described as ‘the most photogenic building in the country’.

Our vibrant and accessible exhibitions showcase nationally and internationally significant art within the largest exhibition space in the South East. Towner is an independent charity and by hiring our spaces you will also be supporting our exhibitions, our learning programme and Collection.

Whether you wish to entertain clients, celebrate a wedding, run a training event, host a private film screening or hold a trade fair, Towner can provide a bespoke package to accommodate your event within our versatile spaces. Our friendly staff will work with you throughout the process to provide a service that completely meets your needs.

Our catering team are on hand to offer a wide-ranging, tailored menu to suit all requirements and budgets. We also have a license for live music and a late night bar.

You may also take advantage of our unique gallery setting and make your event even more special by adding an exclusive private view of an exhibition, or treat your guests to a behind the scenes view of our 5000 Collection works housed in our Art Store.
