Bespoke “Pop Up” Museum Showcasing The Story of Eastbourne

‘This new exhibition will lead you on a journey through Eastbourne's History. It may take twists and turns that you don’t expect and there will be some surprises along the way. It is a celebration of storytelling from the people of Eastbourne. A story through their objects, their words, their legacies and even their bones. It is a tale full of mystery, intrigue, faith, fortune, love, war and magic.’
