What’s happening on the roof of the De La Warr Pavilion? There seems to be a BMX / skateboarding ramp up there.
The roof of the Pavilion can be an entertaining space.
On closer inspection it’s a nice little facility.
Is the DLWP adding street sports to its mission? Kind of. It looks like it’s going to part of the new Shaun Gladwell exhibition opening on February 2nd. I’m looking forward to it.
The whole gig was in French. I don’t speak French. It was still good. I was very proud of recognising the word ‘Blaireau’ – all those years of following cycling weren’t wasted then.
Some snaps below. Eddie doesn’t feature much as he didn’t go on stage until after dark. He was there the whole time chatting to people but I was too shy to ask for a picture.
We went for a walk into Bexhill this evening. There are strange goings on at the De La Warr Pavilion.
There seems to be a bus peeping over the top of the building.
We’ve been looking forward to this coming since it was announced earlier in the year. Kudos to artist Richard Wilson, the Pavilion’s team and principal sponsor Eddie Izzard.
The kiosk is a useful stop if you get peckish between the Sovereign Light and the De La Warr Pavilion. It also sells reasonable priced imitation Crocs.
The Pavilion is isolated from the sea front by perpetual building work, but it has great sea views beyond the scaffolding and security fencing.
The updated Collonade will contain a restaurant or cafe when it’s finished.
The Old Bathing Station is a great place to stop for a coffee as the sun sets. It’s open late during the summer.
The Cafe on the Beach is an extended walk from Bexhill – over Galley Hill and down the other side.
