Up and coming events



Cancellation of activities and talks due to Covid-19 (although these are just postponed we hope)

The Government have confirmed that no indoor leisure activities can take place until after 4th July at the earliest. Even this date is under review and will be put back if necessary. Controls and risk management for outdoor events are just beginning to be thought about, so we will will not be planning any of these until the situation is much clearer.

We have therefore cancelled all talks and dayschool programmed in before the summer break. 
These included:
  • Wed 15th April Luke Barber's talk on the Bishopstone tidemills project .
  • Wed 13th May, Daryl Holter (Sussex police heritage crime advisor) talk on local heritage crime and how it is tackled
  • Sat 27th June. David Bone's dayschool on 'Geology for Archaeologists'

Meanwhile here's wishing you all the best - keep healthy!
