Holiday Activities & Food (HAF) Event: Get Creative!


Ever wanted to know more about Bexhill & Sidley’s notorious Napoleonic-era smugglers trade? During this fun-filled week in August young people aged between seven and 11 will be able to take part in many different creative activities – including music, making, drawing and painting – as we explore the history of smuggling in Bexhill & Sidley.

The week starts at Bexhill Museum where children will get exclusive ‘behind-the-scenes’ access to the museum collections before moving on to De La Warr Pavilion for a further 3 days to create original music and visual art works in response to the theme of smugglers.

During the week we will work towards an informal celebration event, that will take place on the last day of the course, when family and friends are invited to come along and find out more about what you have been working on and learn how to make (and maybe even to taste) the food that you’ve been eating at lunchtimes.

Lunch will be provided for everyone on the course each day and you can also take part in fun games and activities focused on nutritious eating and healthy, active lifestyles. Come along and get creative!

For: Children aged 7-11 living in East Sussex who receive benefits-related Free School Meals.
