Eastbourne Learns the Reality of War

21st March - 13th November 2016
Redoubt Fortress

Hundreds of ordinary Eastbourne men faced the terror and horror of war in 1916. On just one fateful day in June, over 1000 men from Sussex were wounded or killed. Others, the lucky ones, survived - and went on to make our town what it is today. See the new recruits marching out of Eastbourne station and uncover the disastrous tales of soldiers like Albert Thomas Hendley, a baker from Willingdon who returned on leave to make his wedding cake and was tragically killed just a month before his wedding. Be moved and inspired by their stories at the Redoubt Fortress in 2016

Making Tracks - Eastbourne's Bronze Age Mystery

21st March - 13th November 2016


Bronze Age Eastbourne - Living on the Edge is an immersive exhibition revealing the previously untold stories of Eastbourne’s internationally important Bronze Age discovery. For the first time, the ground-breaking discoveries in Shinewater Park will be explored, giving the public a chance to travel back in time to walk alongside the astonishingly rare Bronze Age trackway built by Eastbourne residents in the distant past. Uncover the mysteries of the incredible people living in Eastbourne over 3000 years ago, see some of their treasures and realise what made Eastbourne so special! Put the pieces of the prehistoric puzzle together to discover the tales of international visitors and human inventiveness.
