Bexhill’s De La Warr Pavilion reopens to public: in pictures
Bexhill’s De La Warr Pavilion has reopened to the public following the Covid-19 lockdown.
Stewart Drew, Director and CEO said: “We are very excited to welcome you back to the Pavilion We are so grateful for the emergency funding from Arts Council England and Rother District Council that allows us to bring back some of the team and reopen the Pavilion, the galleries, the cafe, terrace bar and shop for our visitors this summer. Of course we have had to make a number of changes so that you can enjoy your visit as much as possible whilst still keeping safe, and these may have to change again according to government advice. The opening times will be different and you will have to book your free ticket in advance for general admission. At the moment we have just released the first two weeks. Everything you need to know is listed below. We hope that when you visit us you will also go into Bexhill to support the local shops, cafes and B&Bs and find time to visit Bexhill Museum, which opened last week. It is important that we work with our partners to start to reopen the region and boost its economy. Our Coastal Culture Trail partner Towner Eastbourne and our England’s Creative Coast partner Turner Contemporary are both reopening next week and you can read here how 1066 Country is ready to welcome visitors in a safe way. Thank you for your patience and generosity during this very challenging time. The impact of closure for so long means we still need your support. Spending money in the building or making a donation when you book your free ticket will make a real difference to us. We very much look forward to seeing you in the coming weeks.”
