Seeking the support of West Pier lovers everywhere, the West Pier Trust in Brighton are inviting members of the public to visit the West Pier Centre on Sunday 16th December from 11.00am – 4.30pm to buy recently released artefacts recovered from the pier in the 1990s. These are beautiful and unique cast iron fragments with some minor damage. Unlike previous sales, much of the material has been cleaned, revealing the exquisite detail and fine workmanship of the pieces. There is a limited selection available and all funds raised will go towards the restoration of an octagonal kiosk that was once a magnificent part of Eugenius Birch’s original masterpiece. When it opens, the kiosk will be the oldest pier structure in the world and the nation’s first Seaside Learning Centre. It will host an imaginative programme of activities and events designed to attract and benefit people of all ages, including local residents and visitors to the city.
