Brighton Museum is celebrating Sussex Day next Saturday June 17 with a range of drop-in activities storytelling, poetry readings, folk singers, and an introduction to Sussex dialect and folklore. Members of the RSPB will invite visitors to discover the wildlife of Sussex.
It’s all part of the Museum Free Day that it holds once a month. Sussex Day is actually the day before, June 16, the feast day of Saint Richard of Chichester, a 13th century bishop who is the county’s patron saint. This year is the tenth anniversary of the first Sussex Day which was established to raise awareness of one of Britain’s most ancient kingdoms.
