Tour of the De La Warr Pavilion

My Review of:
Tour of the De La Warr Pavilion

Twice a month on a Sunday you can have a well-detailed guided tour of the building and the surroundings for the price of just 6.50.

The tour guide shows you all over the building and in places, which have restricted access and telling you about the building as you go, and learn some interesting facts about the building like when it was build and how much. You also learn about the newly finished refurbishment.

I though the tour was quite good value for money and you given lots of information and a goodie bag. You also learn about the construction of the building and how it was used and how it is used for today.

The tour last for about an hour and a half and I would recommend the tour to people who like to find out about places around them, but it is not suitable for children as there is lots of walking and not much to do.

What Happens When You Call 999?

What Happens When You call 999?”

Dan Dunbar made this film whilst in Year 10 at Willingdon Community School, Eastbourne, as part of his sliver level Arts Award, during 2008. He wanted to capture what happens from the moment a call to the Fire and Rescue Service is made to the engines going out.

Dan worked with Community Arts Manager Marina Castledine and professional filmmaker Nick Pilton after school to complete this part of his Arts Award. This included storyboarding and scripting the entire film, arranging a series of permissions to gain unprecedented access to the workings of East Sussex Fire and Rescue Services, shooting the film on location, as well as editing and presenting his work to the public.

The Arts Award, run by Arts Council England and Trinity Guildhall, supports young people to develop as artists and art leaders.

As a secondary school with Specialist Media and Visual Arts status, encouraging and helping young people both in school and out, to achieve an Arts Award, is an important commitment.

This film could not have been made without the support of the teams at both Eastbourne Fire Station and East Sussex Fire and Rescue Service HQ. Many thanks go to all the staff.
