PROVISIONAL PROGRAMME

Coronation Green                                                                         3 June 2000 


UNDERSEA WORLD 

A fascinating display of large Lobsters, Edible Crabs, Spider Crabs, Fish and Molluscs from the English Channel presented by Jim Partridge of Monteum Ltd / La Poissonerie, Brighton Road, Shoreham-by-Sea.

ROCK POOL AQUARIUM 

In the rock pools and between the tides all around the shores of the world, an attractive mixture of sea anemones, small fish, crabs and molluscs spend their lives. This British Marine Life Study Society display will present the smaller inhabitants of the Sussex coast. 

TOUCH TABLE 

This informative dry display contains the seashells and other animal remains often washed up on the strandline. It will also include a Computer Quiz and other computer resources. 

SHINGLE PLANTS 

In June the perfume of the shingle plants graces Shoreham Beach. This will be just one of several photographic and information displays on the marine environment. The RSPB will provide photographs and information on SEA BIRDS.
