About

People have been making and creating things on the Downland for thousands of years. Make your mark at the Beachy Head Story this spring. Uncover the stories woven, fired and carved into objects and artwork and make your own in this new exhibition.

Creativity on the Downs will be accompanied by a series of events exploring creativity on the downs including guided photography and archaeology walks, children’s craft workshops and talks.

This exhibition is part of The Big Dig Project. The Big Dig is run by Eastbourne Borough Council and is part of the Changing Chalk Partnership. The Big Dig aims to uncover the development of a downland settlement from a small farming community to a thriving conurbation through community test-pitting across the town of Eastbourne. Led by the National Trust, Changing Chalk is a multi-partner project connecting people, nature and heritage in the eastern South Downs. It is supported by The National Lottery Heritage Fund, thanks to National Lottery players. Together we are working towards creating a sustainable future - restoring lost habitats, bringing histories to life, and providing new experiences in the outdoors.
