Event Description

If you have ever been on a traditional British seaside holiday how do you remember it? So much nostalgia surrounds our experience of the seaside from the places we stayed, the people we were with and the things that we did. Donkey rides, Punch and Judy, Candy Floss, penny machines, buckets and spades which did you enjoy? Come with me and explore the history of how this all came about and enjoy a look back at how things used to be.

In February we will explore 3 seaside resorts in detail Littlehampton (7th February), Worthing (14th February) and Brighton (21st February) and delve a little deeper into some key ingredients of the seaside experience.

  • Duration: 4 x 60 mins
  • Online Zoom event: Join from your computer, phone or tablet (no replay available)

More Information

What if I can’t make the event?

If a recording’s available for the event, you can still register for it and we will send you an email with a link to a recording shortly after it ends.

Will my camera be on and will I be visible to the other people?

Your camera and microphone does not need to be on for you to enjoy the event. The choice about whether to do this is completely yours.

How do I watch the live event?

Rest Less events are hosted on Zoom, a computer application that allows you to attend online events just by clicking a link. For detailed instructions, please go to our "FAQ" page, which you can find a link to in the nav bar at the top of the page.

How do I sign-up for and access the recording? (Recorded events only)

Book the event as normal (as if you are attending live). After the event ends you will automatically receive a post-event email with a link to the recording, as long as the event was recorded. You do not need to do anything else and there is no separate booking process for recordings only. Please note it can take up to 24 hours for Zoom to process recordings.
