In 2011 the Stade Education Project launched a competition for the public to design new deck chairs for the Stade. Over 1,000 people entered & twenty winners were chosen at a selection day held at Stade Hall.
Judges were Liz Gilmore, Director of Jerwood Gallery, Hastings; David Rhodes, curator at the De Le Warr Pavilion & Cllr. Trevor Webb, Hastings Borough Council.
One of the designs (above) by Nathan Usmar Lauder of St Leonards is on display in the Stade Hall foyer.
All twenty designs can be seen at an exhibition at Sussex Coast College (12th - 16th September) and at the Seafood & Wine Festival on the weekend of 17th/ 18th September, on the Stade Open Space.
