Historic Langney Priory Welcomes Business Community
Eastbourne’s oldest building will be throwing open its doors to the business community this Friday (30 November).
Historic Langney Priory in Etchingham Road, will be hosting a corporate lunch between 11am-2pm, to showcase the restoration project, as well as plans for the future, which include creating a unique training facility to support the hospitality community in the town. This is an opportunity for the business community within Eastbourne to see how they can get involved and help to be a real part of reviving this historic building to its former glory, whilst investing in the town’s heritage.
When the project first began, many people in the town didn’t know Langney Priory existed, including many who live nearby. However, more and more people are now coming forward wanting to learn about the building and its history and many have been keen to share their stories of their past involvement in Priory with others, whether it’s those who used to scrump apples from the orchard as children, or those who’ve worked there.
To help share these stories and allow everyone to get a glimpse of this rare historical jewel in Eastbourne’s crown, an open day is taking place this Saturday (1 December) between 10am-4pm, where everyone will be welcome.
CEO of Historic Langney Priory, Charlie Turner said, “We are looking forward to a busy weekend at the Priory this weekend. After a really warm reception from Eastbourne UnLtd Chamber of Commerce, we will be showing many of them around the grounds on Friday from 11am for a buffet lunch. Then on Saturday, we will be having a story telling day for people to come and tell us about their memories of the priory or just come to listen. We look forward to seeing you all this weekend.
