Intergenerational Meet-Up - Pavilion Gardens Cafe

By Sarah Hutchings

Intergenerational Meet-Up - Pavilion Gardens Cafe

On Saturday 27 June 2015 our young Brighton's Graphic War participants were treated to an intergenerational meet-up at Brighton and Hove's iconic Pavilion Gardens Cafe, courtesy of the Hedgecock Bequest and David Sewell (at Pavilion Gardens Cafe).

Social geographer Geoffrey Mead was on hand to provide some fascinating background information on Brighton around the period 1900 - 1920. Poverty was the main theme of his talk - and he read short extracts from the Public Health Report of the time. Then our young creatives got to meet some of the Cafe's older customers, one of whom, George (pictured) was born in 1918. They got to handle some WWI artefacts, including a regulation cigarette tin that belonged to one customer's father.

It was a wonderful morning enjoyed by both generations. CLICK TO SEE PHOTOGRAPHS
