schoolchildren enjoying the new exhibitio
PRIMARY schoolchildren from West Sussex and Hampshire are to experience life as a smuggler for the night after winning an annual competition run by The Novium Museum in Chichester.
Budding authors aged between seven and 1were prompted to take inspiration from the museum’s new exhibition, Cutlasses and Contraband; A Smuggler’s Tale.
They were asked the question: “If you could be a Smuggler and take part in an adventure, what would you do?”
Five prizes of a sleepover at the museum for each winner’s class were on offer thanks to funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund’s Sharing Heritage grant.
Sophie Sappleton, Charlotte Vickers, Millie Boulter, Lottie Hodges and Leo Malan were selected overall winners.
Cutlasses and Contraband; A Smuggler’s Tale at The Novium Museum is open now and showcases the untold stories of local smugglers and their victims in the Chichester district.
