There is a programme of social events provided for members of the Friends of Chichester Harbour (FoCH) throughout the year.

The events include talks related to the Harbour and its environment, trips on the Solar Boat which may include bird watching or seal watching and visits to local places of interest. The aim is to provide activities which are both informative and enjoyable as well as opportunities for Friends to meet.

More information

Events are held around the Harbour with most of the winter talks being held at the Stables on Eames Farm on Thorney Island. Evening talks usually start at 7:00pm for 7:30pm so that in the first half hour members can chat with each other over a drink before the presentation. Please check the start time on the advert or Joining Instructions.

2020 and 2021 have been difficult years but we hope to run many Events in 2022.
