Including social and community activities as well as promoting education in and appreciation of the arts, local history and creative activities the promote well-being for the public benefit of people of all ages living working and studying in the borough of Epsom and Ewell.
Opening its doors
After standing empty and at risk for three decades, Horton Chapel will soon open its doors again, as vibrant and inspiring cultural venue The Horton.
It will be an extraordinary arts and heritage destination that uses creativity and social activities to enrich the community and generate opportunities for everyone. A sympathetic architectural conversion enhances the stunning historic features of the building.
Horton Chapel Arts & Heritage Society (HCAHS) was set up in 2016 by Epsom & Ewell residents determined to see Horton Chapel saved from dereliction (and from developers) and brought back to life as a valuable social and cultural asset for the whole community.
The transformation of the formerly derelict Horton Chapel and grounds will preserve its heritage, benefitting the community and all those who visit to take part in creative and wellbeing activities, enjoy performances and The Horton's green space.
Support the cause
The costs of running and maintaining this majestic old building are significant. The charity welcomes donations to support on-going restoration, The Horton's creative and cultural programme, and the development of the grounds for public use.
