Putting Creativity At The Heart Of A Suffolk Market Town

The Art Station is a charity arts organisation providing a new creative hub in Saxmundham, a rural market town in coastal Suffolk. Having completed a major refurbishment of the first floor of a former 1950’s telephone exchange and post office, The Art Station’s unique venue has become a base for a dynamic and engaging arts and community programme.

We aim to unlock potential and effect real change – enabling people to come together to form communities around the creative industries and tech. By providing affordable creative space for local artists, makers and tech developers, alongside exhibition and event spaces, The Art Station is developing new networks in the region and provides access to unique creative opportunities.
