Eastbourne Arts Circle Meetings move to Zoom

With effect from 1 February 2021, Eastbourne Arts Circle will be moving all our meetings to Zoom.

This will continue, while the Covid 19 pandemic has a hold of the country, and until social distancing regulations are relaxed to allow us to have 80 people in the Auditorium at the Towner Art Gallery again.

To encourage people to attend we have halved the price of attendance.  Tickets will cost only £5 per person.

The first lecture to move to Zoom will be the lecture on Friday 19th February 2021 by Dr Prasannajit De Silva who will talk about Edwin Landseer (1802-1873). This will be followed by the lecture on Fri 19th March 2021 by Peter Scott on Gwen and Augustus John, the lecture on Fri 16th April by Dr Helen Rufus-Ward and Geraldine Alexander, on “Bringing India to Britain”

Please go to the events pages to find a link to the revised ticket booking form. All those who have purchased tickets will be sent an email link prior to the lecture, which will permit them to join us.

Zoom (participant) software is free, and can be used on Desktops, Laptops, Tablets and mobile phones as long as they have a camera and microphone.

Sir Philip Anson, our treasurer is happy to help any member requiring assistance setting up Zoom on their computer, tablet (either Apple or Android) or mobile smartphone.

Eastbourne Arts Circle present £10,000 to the Towner Art Gallery


This December, Eastbourne Arts Circle (registered charity), presented £10,000 to Eastbourne’s Towner Art Gallery.  This was the fourth instalment of a pledged gift of £50,000 over five years. Over the past five years the Eastbourne Arts Circle has gifted over £150,000 to the Towner Art Gallery.  The Towner Art Gallery raise money by holding art and music lectures and showing films in the gallery’s auditorium (partly funded by a large donation from Eastbourne Arts Circle). Sadly, the charity’s events had to be cancelled since April 2020, but we hope to resume these in 2021.
