A Prince’s Treasure

From Buckingham Palace to the Royal Pavilion – the Royal Collection Returns to Brighton

A spectacular loan from the Royal Collection is on display at the Royal Pavilion. The culmination of a collaborative venture between Royal Collection Trust and the Royal Pavilion & Museums, over 120 remarkable decorative works of art that were originally commissioned by the Prince Regent, have been relocated from Buckingham Palace and re-united in their previous setting of the Royal Pavilion.  Many of the works have not been on public display for over 170 years and are on loan to the Royal Pavilion whilst essential building works in the East Wing of Buckingham Palace take place. This unique project provides a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for visitors to see these magnificent items in their former home.

Royal Pavilion, Royal Pavilion Gardens, BN1 1EE

During opening hours, free with admission, members free

October to March: 10am-5.15pm (last tickets at 4.30pm)

Sussex Guild

Sussex Guild Shop – Online

We are delighted to announce that the Sussex Guild Shop is now ONLINE, bringing some of the best designer/makers’ new work direct to your living room.

Please feel free to browse the unique gifts for sale and support our designer/makers by visiting our new “Winter” online selling exhibition directly from the Sussex Guild Website. Just click on https://thesussexguild.co.uk/  to go directly to our online shop.

The coronavirus pandemic and subsequent lockdown has greatly affected our designer/makers. With all our craft shows cancelled as well as temporary closures at the Guild Shop, our makers have really missed the opportunities for face to face contact with their customers.  This selling exhibition will close on 3 Jan but we hope that this will be just the beginning of our “online shop” presence and we plan to add regular online selling exhibitions in the future as well as re-establishing our much loved craft shows and the Guild Shop & Gallery in Lewes.

Murmurations will utilise our Neo-Gothic Grade II listed facade by transforming the huge stained glass windows into a canvas for a projection-based exploration of Brighton’s starling murmurations.

Between 22nd December and 28th February you will be able to see and enjoy Murmurations from outside the gallery by looking up at the building’s facade on Ship Street, Brighton between 5pm and dawn. This exhibition has been made possible by The Cultural Recovery Fund.
