Ever wanted to know more about smugglers? During this fun-filled week you will be able to take part in many different creative activities – including music, making, drawing and painting – as we explore the history of smuggling in Bexhill. There will be a free, fresh and delicious cold lunch for every child on the course.

TO BOOK: Spaces are limited so please book through the Create Music website HERE


9.30am – 1.30pm each day, with breaks.

Monday 1 August – meet a smuggler at Bexhill Museum

Tuesday 2  & Wednesday 3 August – you will be creating music inspired by real life smugglers’ stories! At the De La Warr Pavilion 

Thursday 4 August – fun art activities with a chance to show your family and friends what you have been doing during the week.


We start our week at Bexhill Museum where children will get exclusive ‘behind-the-scenes’ access to the museum collections before moving on to De La Warr Pavilion for a further 3 days to create original music and visual art works in response to the theme of smugglers.

During the week we will work towards an informal celebration event, that will take place on the last day of the course, when family and friends are invited to come along and find out more about what you have been working on and learn how to make (and maybe even to taste) the food that you’ve been eating at lunchtimes.

Lunch will be provided for everyone on the course each day and you can also take part in fun games and activities focused on nutritious eating and healthy, active lifestyles. Come along and get creative!
