It will soon be another week of school holidays and, as always, the De La Warr Pavilion has lots of activities to see and do and a great place to eat and drink – for all the family!

27 & 28 May
Long Nose Puppets present

Arthur’s Dream Boat
based on the book by Polly Dunbar

11am and 2pm
Tickets £9

One night, Arthur has an amazing dream about a beautiful pink and green boat with a stripy mast. He can’t wait to tell everyone about it but no one (not even his dog!) is interested. Soon, Arthur is bouncing along the waves in his very own dream boat. Maybe now his family will listen to him! A magical playful children’s show with breathtaking puppets, so enchanting that everyone will want to sail away with Arthur in his dream boat! This brand new show is brought to you by Long Nose Puppets, creators of Shoe Baby and Penguin.

We spent a few hours in Bexhill over the weekend of the 23rd April. The weather was superb and the area was lovely. It was free to park on the seafront and the pavilion area was very well looked after. We ventured upstairs to the glass fronted pavilion for some food and drink. The service was good, the place was clean and tidy and the choice of food and drink was very good. The high point for me was the superb choice of what looked like home cooked cakes. The best for me was the most amazing piece of Flapjack I have ever tasted – bloomin lovely.
