Towner on the Beach

Posted on 30/05/2018

Come and make art on the beach this summer! On the first weekends in July, August and September, Towner is taking over one of Eastbourne’s classic Beach Huts between the Wish Tower and the Lifeguard Station. Each month we invite a different local artist to lead creative activities inspired by our current exhibition At Altitude.

Join us in Beach Hut 37 anytime between 11.00am and 5.00pm on the dates below. Activities are suitable for all ages, no booking is required, materials are provided and donations are welcome.
