Weekend Activities

2017

Our weekend activities are now finished for the 2016 season apart from the Christmas weekend but we are looking forward to a packed calendar for 2017. Please keep checking the website for further details as they emerge.


Bubbletastic weekend

Saturday 29th April - Monday 1st May

Join in the fun during our Bubbletastic Weekend for the Bank Holiday. Create the most spectacular bubbles, find out what it is like to stand in a bubble, try to make the biggest bubble you can and even see if you can make a square bubble - is that really possible? Our bubble wall in the Light and Colour exhibition will also explain what you are looking at and why you see what you see.

No pre-booking required and this activity is FREE as part of your normal admission.
Jaguars on the Lawn

We are delighted to host the East Sussex Jaguar Enthusiasts Club for an annual summer event with some of their beatiful cars. http://www.esjec.com/calendar
