It is the last weekend before payday for many and budgets for everyone are being stretched thin amidst the cost of living crisis.
However, the tough times do not necessarily mean you have to miss out on fun things to do across the city and across Sussex.
Here are five places to visit this weekend which all have free entry.
Raystede Centre for Animal Welfare
At Ringmer, near Lewes, the Raystede Centre for Animal Welfare is an animal rescue centre and sanctuary which provides rescue, rehabilitation and rehoming to both pets and larger animals like horses, goats and alpacas.
Founded in 1952, the centre covers 43 acres and cares for over 2,000 animals every year. With free parking and entry, shops and a cafe, visitors can enjoy a peaceful few hours at the site many rescue animals call home.
Brewers Towner International, Towner Eastbourne
This weekend is the final weekend to catch the Brewers Towner International, a biennial exhibition of contemporary virtual arts.
The exhibition features a range of local, national and international artists, exploring the ideas of memory, trauma, healing and collaboration.
Booth Museum of Natural History
Founded in 1874 by collector Edward Thomas Booth, the Booth Museum of Natural History in Brighton’s Dyke Road is home to a staggering collection of 525,000 insects, 50,000 minerals and rocks, 30,000 plants and 5,000 microscopic slides.
A Place Called Home, Hove Museum of Creativity
An exhibition of paintings from the Brighton and Hove Museum’s collection explores the places which someone might call home.
With free entry, the museum in New Church Road also offers a range of other exhibitions to enjoy.
A contemporary art gallery in the centre of Brighton, Fabrica in Duke Street is the place where artists come to make and display new and adventurous work.
Opening in March 1996 in the deconsecrated Holy Trinity Church, the gallery is currently displaying the Many Happy Days exhibition by Duncan Poulton – a digital collage in which archaeological textbook photographs and smiling cartoon rainclouds are compressed.
