New exhibition ‘Through the Aperture: The View from Here’ opens on 15 January

The exhibition, which includes photos taken by members of the public and some entries from the 2021 Visit Eastbourne photo competition, will be taking place within The Beachy Head Story. Situated next to the Beachy Head pub.

Giving visitors the opportunity to explore Downland landscapes and experience the effect of light and dark on this unique environment.

Visitors will also be encouraged to look for their favourite views from the window and share their own images on social media.

Eastbourne Borough Council’s Cabinet Member for Tourism and Culture, Cllr Margaret Bannister said, “This exciting new exhibition will give visitors the opportunity to explore spectacular Downland landscapes through this impressive collection of photographs, which tell of journeys through extraordinary landscapes, familiar views seen in unfamiliar ways and of moments stolen in the seconds between light and dark.

“Visitors can explore more of the Downland through these photographs and get a better idea of where some of the objects on display in the Beachy Head Story were found.

“Since opening, the Beachy Head Story has attracted thousands of visitors and this new exhibition will add to the great experience of discovering the stories of people who have shaped our unique landscape and learn why Beachy Head is still a must-see tourist destination on the south coast.”

Entrance to The Beachy Head Story is free with donations welcome. The exhibition runs until 31 March.
