Established in 1976, Oxmarket Contemporary is a registered charity offering modern exhibition space within a beautiful and atmospheric historic building in the heart of Chichester. We are a hub for artists, designers and makers of all kinds and a destination for lovers of art, craft and design.

Located in a medieval deconsecrated church, formerly St Andrew’s, which has existed since the 13th century and was used as a church continuously until the mid 20th century, when wartime damage forced its closure. Between 1971 and 1976, the building was restored and converted into an arts centre opening as Chichester Centre of Arts, which was later renamed to Oxmarket Centre of Arts. In 1989, the church was extended using rubble stone. In 2020 planning permission was given for further renovations to be made to the building in order to modernise the space and created a new enlarged entrance.
