    “Have a go at guitar, keyboard, drum kit or vocals and join our new band,” said a spokesman. “Together we will learn some classic songs and maybe try writing some new ones, inspired by the amazing exhibitions and collections at Hastings Museum & Art Gallery. Our friendly tutors can help you develop new skills but if you already play an instrument, please bring it with you.”

    “Our Relaxed Openings are for neurodiverse children and families, people with autism or additional needs who may find it easier to enjoy the exhibition in a calmer environment. During Relaxed Opening our lights will be on full and any sounds and videos turned off so it’s a less overwhelming environment for you.”

    Jason and his Argonauts, until September 4, during opening hours, drop-in, for all ages.

    “Jason and his Argonauts is a major new exhibition of fun, vibrant and thought-provoking digital artworks by Jason Wilsher-Mills. Taking inspiration from his ancient Greek namesake, Jason worked with disabled communities around the UK, to explore themes of disability. The exhibition tells stories from these communities, mixing them with Jason’s own biography, creating new stories and myths. At the centre of this exhibition is a richly decorated inflatable Argonaut sculpture.”

    The museum is free.
