MY HA­VANT

So­phie Fullerlove, The Spring Arts & Her­itage Cen­tre

“I have been lucky enough to lead the team at The Spring for the last five years. The Spring is a small place where big things hap­pen. We’re an arts cen­tre, the­atre, mu­seum, gallery, café and shop. Our build­ing is in the cen­tre of Ha­vant, but our reach ex­tends across the county and we take per­for­mances right across the bor­ough. Our 26 staff and 95 vol­un­teers are all pas­sion­ate about the role cul­tural or­gan­i­sa­tions have within com­mu­ni­ties and sup­port us in putting on events that make lo­cal res­i­dents stop in their tracks.

I don’t live in Ha­vant, but com­mute each day from Southampton along the dreaded M27. Get­ting here makes it worth­while though as the bor­ough is an amaz­ing place. An evening can’t be bet­ter spent than a walk down the Hayling Billy line (stop­ping for a drink at The Wheel­wright’s Arms and The Ship in Lang­stone at ei­ther end) or tak­ing a trip to Hayling Is­land for a dip in the sea after a busy day. How­ever, my favourite ex­pe­ri­ence is see­ing au­di­ences leave The Spring after a per­for­mance, look­ing so happy.”
