Royal Pavilion & Museums Insider -- 24 July 2020

Our big news this week is that the Royal Pavilion will open again to visitors on Monday 27 July. See how we've been sprucing up the palace before it reopens and check our website for our visitor FAQ and 'Welcome Back' video.

Although Hove Museum remains closed, our resident craft maker has been inspired by Sudanese ceramicist Siddig El’ Nigoumi and shares some tips for making with clay. We also look at a cross-dressing music hall star, proposed designs for Brighton Clock Tower, and remember two dedicated cinema historians.
