Preview: Welcome to our World-new illuminations and other work, The Admiral Benbow, 2 London Road, St Leonards. September 15/16 and 22/23, 11am to 6pm. £3 (£1 concessions).

This provides a not-to-be-missed opportunity to see major new works in addition to the existing collection of neon, fairground ephemera and seaside illuminations.

Many works will be for sale. Visitors will also have the chance to explore the living areas of the converted pub.

This year an off-season Father Christmas will running a workshop with some elves for both weekends.

This is no grotto - he will be in manufacturing mode and also planning the logistics for the big day in December.

All proceeds from the admission charge will go to St Michael’s Hospice.

The event ties in with the 25th anniversary of the hospice, with the theme of ‘celebrating life’ running through the works, which ties in with the desire to dispel the misconception that people only go to the hospice to die.
