Objectives

Horton Chapel Arts & Heritage Society was set up to save and convert a disused chapel located in Epsom Surrey, and run it as new arts and heritage venue, The Horton. The former chapel served the now closed five Victorian psychiatric hospitals in the area. The renovation is funded by a substantial grant from the National Lottery Heritage Fund and section 106 funds released from redevelopment in the area, as well as other grants from the Architectural Heritage Fund, Power to Change and Viridor Credits.

The venue is scheduled to open in 2021.

Activities

The Horton is a hub for creative learning, performance, space hire, a cafe-bar and a permanent exhibition about the history of the Epsom hospital cluster.
