Are you looking for fun affordable things to do with the children or grandchildren during the school holidays? Get Summer Sorted by joining Sussex Past with family membership starting from just £1 a week.

With many households struggling due to the cost-of-living crisis, Sussex Past – the trading arm of The Sussex Archaeological Society, a registered not-for-profit charity – is launching a new campaign to promote its range of remarkable properties to local families and visitors.

From just £52 a year, those with children aged up to 16 can visit six special sites for 12 months a year – with properties including the remarkable Fishbourne Roman Palace; the majestic medieval moated island at Michelham Priory; and the imposing Norman fortress at Lewes Castle & Museum.

A range of family-friendly activities are taking place at Sussex Past sites during the summer months, with drop-in activities provided by our award-winning Educational Team throughout the week.

Sessions will run at Lewes Castle & Museum on Monday and Thursdays; Tudor Tuesdays at Anne of Cleves House; Wednesdays at Michelham Priory and Thursdays at Fishbourne Roman Palace. Full details are on our What’s On page.

Andrew Edwards, Chief Executive of the Society, said: “For more than 175 years, we have championed the history and heritage of Sussex, ensuring as many people as possible have access to the wonderful heritage of this stunning county.

“We know that times are tough for many families currently which is why we have worked hard to make our family membership as affordable and accessible to as many people as possible.

“By joining, you are not only gaining unlimited access to our summer programme of activities which offer great days out for all the family; you will also have access to a range of other benefits while supporting us to protect the heritage of Sussex for generations to come.”

Family membership for one adult and up to three children costs £52 a year. For two adults and up to four children the cost is £80 a year – about £6.70 a month.

Existing members are able to add young people on to their individual or joint membership for just £5 a year.
