Welcome to our website

We really hope you enjoy our website and that you come back often to follow our progress…. Our ‘irregular’ newsletters will also ensure you don’t miss the important news and events at the Fort – sign up here!

If you’ve visited the fort then please fill out our survey. We also have one for our events, please do let us know how it was for you.

If you are part of a community group/organisation, we can come to you with our presentation or offer you a group tour, or just have a general enquiry.

Do you have any photos that you’d like to share with us? See the Photo-stream for more information.

For a small annual fee, you can become a member and find out more about Shoreham Fort’s history – one of our volunteers regularly find gems of information for us to share with you. Find out more! If you regularly volunteer at the fort we give you a years membership for free as a small token of our appreciation so come and join in the fun on our fortnightly volunteer day.

WOW!!! Kickstarter Success!

It’s absolutely amazing how much support we have received from those outside the local area for our Kickstarter project. We did in fact go international with backers from Ireland, America and even Australia. We also had backers from various locations across the UK too including Southampton, Thetford (Norfolk), London and our biggest support by far was from Kent.

We cannot thank Mr & Mrs Nichols of Squadmatic enough for ensuring that we reached our target figure, therefore enabling this project to progress. Squadmatic is a family run business and Mr and Mrs Nichols visit us frequently (sometimes when we’re there too), they consider our dedication, work and the project to be a very worthwhile cause, which is always nice for us volunteers to hear.

Thank you to each and every one of you who backed us, we really do appreciate your generosity and belief in the Shoreham Fort project.

Thank you also to Fred Aldsworth, who organised the 70’s/80’s restoration project, for offering to help with this part of the book.

Now to make this souvenir book amazing with the help of Creative Waves Community Arts

Kickstart our guidebook!

It’s been a busy few weeks here, preparing for our up and coming Kickstarter launch of our souvenir guide book.


single-front-mockup

We’re hoping that this can be used to fund a design and initial print run of a souvenir guidebook all about the Fort. Including a brief tour, history about the fort, the film studio, the Forts role in both wars, and more, we really hope that this will be a guidebook that can be enjoyed by all ages.

Please support our kickstarter campaign and support your Fort.

No Tours Tomorrow

It’s our fortnightly open day tomorrow (Sunday 25th) but, due to illness, unfortunately there will be no free tours of the site.

The volunteers will be on site from 11:00-16:00 and we will be able to answer any questions. The shack will be open for hot and cold drinks, so do come down and say hello :)

Volunteers

People are genuinely surprised when we tell them how few volunteers we have that come on site on a regular basis to help maintain and conserve the site for the enjoyment of the public. If you think you would like to get involved with this amazing project then please do get in touch or come down on one of our volunteer days. It may look like it's all hard, manual work but there really is a job for all.
