Eddie Izzard to open Bexhill Museum

[from the Argus]

Top comedian Eddie Izzard returns to the town of his childhood to re-open a museum.

He will cut the ribbon at Bexhill Museum on Thursday, November 26 after a ten year fight to transform the 95-year-old building.

The £2million-plus project has been made possible by a £900,000 grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund, £700,000 from Rother District Council and £250,000 from the Society of Bexhill Museums plus other donations.

Since its “soft” opening in July the museum has been attracting record attendances.

Eddie is patron of the museum.
