Sat 18 May - Sun 18 Aug Heritage Highlights


Heritage Highlights includes the return of last year’s poignant End of War and Extraordinary Women displays, celebrating the centenaries of both the end of WW1 and also the first votes for women as well as the brand new Heritage Lottery funded Gasbags Ahoy! exhibition, produced by Creative Force with volunteers from the local community, which tells the fascinating story of the R.N.A.S. Polegate Airship Station during World War 1.

The free exhibition will also feature the stories behind the ‘Faces of the Fort’ from the Redoubt Fortress, which is currently open on weekends only for guided ‘hard hat’ tours while restoration works take place.
Gasbags Ahoy! launched in March with a temporary display on the original site of the airship station, and will now join the Heritage Eastbourne collection for the summer. Visitors can uncover engaging stories of bravery from the airship crew descendants, film footage and even try their hand at semaphore.
