The Music is Not in the Machine, De La Warr Pavilion bandstand

This picture was taken by Pevensey Bay based resident and businesswoman, Hayley Dawson, at the De La Warr Pavilion in the evening sunset at Bexhill on October 24, 2018

Niall McLaughlin Architects’ De La Warr Pavilion bandstand was unveiled in December 2001. The bandstand, on the South Terrace of the 1930s Grade I-listed building in Bexhill-on-Sea, East Sussex, is a lightweight structure made from fibreglass-coated plywood. It is mounted on a steel base that can be moved around.

The picture captures both the spirit of the building and the local setting with the sun going down as we look across to the channel and the European mainland.

The picture is to feature in the latest edition of the Pevensey Bay Journal newspaper, described by the picture of the week team as ‘a simply stunning photograph, sublime in some way in the setting the context of the scene in a spontaneous sunset moment, we think that The Music is Not in the Machine,  De La Warr Pavilion bandstand by Hayley Dawson is perhaps an award winning photograph’.
