Eastbourne has plenty to offer art-lovers too. The Towner Art Gallery has a wonderful variety of art on display from across the ages, and regularly launches new and exciting exhibitions.

You could also check out his solo show, ‘Redoubt’, in which he uses classic Scandinavian film techniques.
Opening on 1st February, the Eastbourne Ancestors exhibition is a great way to spend some time if you’re interested in history. The exhibition provides visitors with an insight into human remains dating back as far as the Bronze Age, thanks to scientific analysis revealing everything from our ancestors’ social statuses to how they looked.
If you fancy a laugh, on 7th February Eastbourne will be hosting a night of brilliant comedy in the form of the Screaming Blue Murder Comedy Club.
