Burgess Hill Green Circle Public Art Trail

Green O public art scheme logo

The Burgess Hill Green Circle Network is a ring of green spaces around and within the town, connected to one another and protected from development. Linked green spaces such as the Green Circle provide a continuous habitat for wildlife, ‘a wildlife corridor’, allowing species to travel through the area looking for suitable living conditions, despite the disturbance of a busy town. The Network also provides residents with easy access to these open spaces, connected by a series of traffic-free routes.

The Green Circle Public Art Trail aims to enhance public enjoyment and understanding of Burgess Hill's beautiful Green Circle Network while celebrating the locality and the achievements of some of it's noteworthy inhabitants. The project is funded by Section 106 money (from local developments) and is designated solely for public art.

Burgess Hill Town Council invited submissions for five commissions which were awarded in December 2016. Each artist exhibited their design in January 2017 at the Market Place Shopping Centre, Burgess Hill, and the feedback given was looked at by both the artists and steering group. The artists have participated in public workshops during the Burgess Hill Summer Festival and in local schools and colleges.

The Artworks were installed during September 2017 and the project was formally opened by HRH The Duke of Gloucester on 2nd October 2017. Click on the coloured links below to find out about each sculpture and artist.

Due to circumstances beyond our control, Bluebird Contained by Steve Geliot has not yet been installed. Due to the intricate nature of the design we are advised the sculpture will be installed and ready to view after 15 December 2017.

The project has been overseen by the Public Art Steering Group which consists of representatives of the Friends of Burgess Hill Green Circle Network and the Burgess Hill Local History Society, local Councillors, Burgess Hill Town Council and Mid Sussex District Council officer(s).
