Saxon Weekend

– We are delighted to announce that Worthing Museum & Art Gallery will be hosting our second “Saxon Sussex Weekend” on Friday 27th & Saturday 28th April.

On the Friday we’re teaming up with the South Downs Society for a tour of the local Anglo-Saxon churches, starting at the wonderful Sompting church then followed by a walk up the Adur valley to visit the beautiful churches at Botolphs & Coombes.

On Saturday we will be welcoming the Gesithas Engliscan Anglo-Saxon society as well as the Weorod Living History Group to the museum for a series of free lectures and demonstrations of life in early Saxon Sussex through out the day! This will involve battle reenactments, living history demonstrations and possibly even a burial!

Keep an eye on social media for more information over the next few weeks, or email us at
