We spoke to… in charge at St Leonards Central “But we are also more than ‘just’ a shop. Part of our mission is to fill the information gap that exists and be the visitor centre or tourist information office for St Leonards on Sea that it needs and deserves. So, please come in with your info and publicity if you are running a St Leonards based event or are a St Leonards based performer or creative or pick up information about local events, festivals, talks, exhibitions, shows, issues and campaigns. Our venue is also available to host events, talks, screenings and meetings outside opening hours, with the aim of acting as an ‘ideas exchange’ that will help develop new projects and initiatives to move St Leonards forward”.
