Katie Da Cunha Lewin

It’s cold and it’s damp so why not cuddle up with a nice cup of tea and plot your cultural events for 2020. There is plenty on in Brighton to get you thinking or to simply feast your eyes on this year.

Cultural Icons: Remaking a Popular Pottery Tradition
Hove Museum, 19 New Church Road, Hove, BN3 4AB

Hove Museum are showing something different until February in 2020: political pottery. Taking the famous Victorian figurine as inspirations, several different artists have been commissioned to produce some wild and wacky ceramics that engage with political figures and important themes of the day.

Lego Before Lego
Brighton Toy and Model Museum, 52 - 55 Trafalgar Street, Brighton, East Sussex, BN1 4EB

If you haven’t had a chance to see Lego before Lego at the Brighton Toy and Model Museum in 2019, then not to worry: it’s running until June 2020! Founded in 1932, Lego is now synonymous with those colourful blocks, but in this exhibition, the Museum explores the early history of the company, including lots of their wooden toys as well as their more well-known plastic designs.

A Prince’s Treasure
The Royal Pavilion, 4 - 5 Pavilion Buildings, Brighton, BN1 1EE

The Royal Pavilion is one of Brighton’s most well-known buildings, due to its stunning and unique design. Since September 2019, the Pavilion has hosted an exhibition that shows some 120 objects from the Royal Collection. Many of these decorative items have not been on display for nearly 200 years, and they give a fascinating insight into the tastes of the past.
