Summer holiday creative fun with Bexhill Museum. East Sussex Music & the De La Warr Pavilion!

Join this free four day summer holiday project to explore Ancient Egypt through hands-on activity at Bexhill Museum and songwriting, music and art at the De La Warr Pavilion.

These activities are for children aged 8 – 11 years who are from families who receive benefit-related free school meals and must be booked in advance.


Monday 2 August: Discover the secrets of Ancient Egypt! Led by the team at Bexhill Museum at Bexhill Museum in Egerton Park, Bexhill

Tuesday 3 & Wednesday 4 August: Join East Sussex Music for songwriting and music workshops on an Egyptian theme! In the De La Warr Pavilion auditorium

Thursday 5 August: The Adoration of RA – Led by artists Sarah Janes and Pascal Immanuel Michael. In this workshop we will be making some important ritual items that were associated with the adoration of Ra (the Sun god). The religions of ancient Egypt were all about adoring nature and the elements. The art and craft Egyptian artisans produced reflected the beauty of the natural forms and patterns they saw in the world around them. As a finale for your three days of learning about all things ancient Egyptian, we will stage a Ra worshipping ceremony using projections, lights, smells and sounds in the fantastic auditorium at the De La Warr Pavilion.

All activities will be followed by a FREE wholesome cold lunch, freshly prepared in the DLWP kitchen every day.

9.30 – 1.30pm

Funded by The Department of Education and East Sussex County Council and co-organised by Bexhill Museum, East Sussex Music and the De La Warr Pavilion.
