Popular Exhibition to Keeps Memories on Display until Spring

31 October 2018

The popular Eastbourne Remembers exhibition will remain open until next Spring, following a successful run with thousands of visitors stopping by to reminisce lost pieces of time.


Eastbourne Remembers ExhibitionThe free Pavilion based exhibition has been extended into 2019, while the Heritage Eastbourne team create the brand new Story of Eastbourne exhibition which opens next February in the town centre.

Unlocking extraordinary memories from the past 2,000 years, the exhibition uncovers the memory triggers of nostalgic childhoods, heirlooms and the commemoration of loved ones, also exploring how we create memories – both true and false, and how we choose to remember, or in some cases, even forget!

Ranging from a fun glimpse into pop culture and changing technologies, to the heart-breaking stories of a soldier in the WW1 trenches and a WW2 refugee, the exhibition even includes a Napoleonic medal memory twist, celebrating an invasion that never happened.

Many more fascinating stories are revealed, all while a unique brass striking clock, carved in ancient Eastbourne Elm, ticks away the sands of time.

Eastbourne Borough Council Lead Cabinet Member for Tourism and Enterprise, Cllr Margaret Bannister said “As well as discovering some fascinating stories and understanding how we use memory, this thought provoking exhibition has also played an important part within our community.

School children have extended their classroom learning with guided visits and project work, while we have also supported those experiencing memory loss, using nostalgic triggers in the exhibition to encourage engagement and communication. I am delighted to see this important work continue, while visitors can also enjoy a fascinating and sentimental journey through the last 2,000 years.”

Eastbourne Remembers is open daily at the Pavilion from 10am to 4pm each day (except 25 – 26 December and 1 January), and includes a café.
