Join in!

Fancy having a piece of your art on the walls of our art gallery? Now's your chance!

Beach Creative & Toast miss sharing art with you, so we want to bring the gallery to YOU!

We will be releasing 2 poems. One is to raise awareness for Ocean Plastics Pollution & the other is to celebrate the amazing animals we share our world with!

We invite YOU to draw or paint a colourful picture, inspired by the poems and send it to us to display!

As our doors are close, we will be making a video of your work, along with the poems for all to enjoy from the comfort of their homes!

Post your art through the door to:

AnimalsRAmazing Art, Beach Creative, Beach House, Beach Street, Herne Bay CT65PT

Make sure your name, age [optional] is on the front of your artwork so it can be seen in the video.

Try not to fold you work - children and adults welcome!

Easy like a Sunday Story..

While the doors of TOAST have sadly been closed, Sherry has been being creative with her time. 


In a bid to find some pleasant escapism from the pandemic, Sherry is writing a short story each week, which she performs on You Tube every Sunday. The nature of the ‘easiness’ of the stories aptly lends its name to the series; 'Easy Like a Sunday Story’. There have been six episodes so far, with a new one tomorrow.


Or if you prefer, the stories are repeated every Tuesday after the 7pm news on CabinFM and again on Sunday mornings at 8am.  The ‘Cabin Stories’ are a few weeks behind, tomorrow’s will be Episode 2.

The Big Art Exhibition

Beach Creative is joining in with The Great Big Art Exhibition by using its front windows as an art display space.

The Great Big Art Exhibition is an initiative run by Firstsite who are based in Colchester. It is encouraging artists, young and old, amateur and professional to display their work in windows, on balconies or in gardens, while all our galleries and Art Centres are closed.


Go to the website: and download an introduction pack.

See the Facebook page: The Great Big Art Exhibition.

Or Twitter @firstsite and Instagram @firstsitecolchester


To show in the Beach Creative window:

• We need artwork no bigger than A4.

• It needs to be able to go through the letterbox (rolled or folded).

• To be unframed, it can be mounted though.

• Share it on one of the social media sites listed above.

Every week we will go through the letterbox submissions and make selections to show in our windows. First selections in by Sat Feb 13th.

There are themes, the current one we believe is ANIMALS.


Please remember to put your name and contact details on the back of your artwork.
