Bexhill Culture

The De La Warr Pavilion takes pride of place on Bexhill's elegant seafront.  Also known as 'The People's Pavilion', the building itself has been voted one of 21 landmarks that define the 21st century Britain by readers of The Independent Traveller and BA's High Life Magazine.  It is now a creative hotspot for contemporary culture on the south coast.

Bexhill Museum offers plenty to see.  Discover the hidden history of Bexhill from its earliest days to medieval village, Napoleonic barrack town, Victorian/Edwardian resort and the birthplace of British motor racing in 1902.  Look out for the models of the De La Warr Pavilion, the Easter Egg Car, a giant Japanese crab and the Eddie Izzard family train set!

In addition to the extensive programme of nationally acclaimed exhibitions and live performances at the De La Warr Pavilion, the town hosts a number of large scale events throughout the summer season.  It’s a Guinness World Record breaker for the largest Charleston dance (2015), an accolade gained at the annual 1920’s-themed weekend.  A range of ‘events on wheels’ attest to its motor racing heritage, such as Motofest, DUBS at the DLWP and regular classic car shows.  The Festival of the Sea unites local seafood chefs and sea anglers in a joyful celebration of the everlasting backdrop to Bexhill-on-sea.
