Museum joining the celebrations

SEAFORD Museum will take part in the Heritage Open Days next month.

Seaford Museum will open with free entry on Saturday, September 10, 2.30pm-4.30pm, and Sunday, September 11, 11am- 4.30pm.

On the Sunday there will be the added attraction of the re-enactment group of The 1st Foot Guards (1815) dressed in their traditional red coats giving musket firing displays in the moat of the Martello Tower.

As part of the celebrations, the museum is arranging for shops or houses in the old part of the town to display pictures of how their buildings looked several decades ago.

There will also be a series of sessions of a local history course. ‘Tides and Turbulence’; ‘Not so Rotten’ and ‘Lessons and Leisure’ are the themes of three of the six sessions local history course run by Seaford Museum on Saturday mornings from mid-September until the end of October. Numbers are being kept to around 15.

The course will cost £45 to Seaford Museum members or £50 to non-members, but that will include a year’s membership of the museum.
