Things to do in Sussex

Helen Higgins' work
Visit Worthing Museum and Art Gallery to see art inspired by ancient Sussex

A few suggestions to help you to plan the next few weeks.

Heritage

Artefacts from Worthing's ancient past have been used to inspire a series of artworks on display at Worthing Museum and Art Gallery.

Artist and printmaker Helen Higgins was given exclusive hands-on access to the museum's archaeological archive and she used finds from excavations at the St Barnabas House Hospice in 2008 to influence her work.

Her collection will be on display until 7 May 2011.

The excess of Georgian dress - and an insight into the life of one of its most important citizens - is on show at Brighton Pavilion.

'Dress for Excess: fashion in Regency England' will run until next year and looks at the life of George IV as prince, regent and king. On display are his huge breeches and coronation robe.

Outdoors

If you fancy a walk and it's a Thursday head to Pulborough Brooks, in West Sussex.

All are welcome to the informal RSPB nature walk, which starts at 10.30 and finishes at 12.

Family fun

For greenfingered newcomers to gardening, the Nymans Estate in Handcross, West Sussex, will be holding seed planting family workshops from Monday 21

Arts

Chichester has 'From Cézanne to Picasso: European Masters' - a look at some of the great painters which features work from both of the title names as well as others including Klee, Manet, Matisse ando Miro.

It's at the Pallant House Galley and it runs until March 13th.
