Summer in East Sussex - What to do


By Sarah Rumbles - 27th July 2017

If you’re wondering what you can do to enjoy summer in the East Sussex area this year, we can help!

Here we have put together a few different (and hopefully interesting) events that will be taking place in the coming month or so:

Festival of the Garden: The Culture of Place

Flowers in Long Grass

This is taking place on the 28th and 29th July at Charlseton, which was one of the country homes where the Bloomsbury Group met in the 20th Century. The Bloomsbury Group consisted of a group of artists, writers and philosophers to discuss creativity. They believed in truth and innovation, and a few of the names in the group included Virginia Woolf, Vanessa Bell and E.M. Forster.

Firle Vintage Fair

On the 12th and 13th August, five miles away from our East Sussex Show Centre in Lewes, Firle are hosting their annual vintage fair in Firle Park.

Fairground Ride

This fair will consist of two wonderful days enjoying the past, with over 150 exhibitors in the park, allowing you to explore antique stalls, artisan food stalls, and haberdashers, as well as Victorian fair rides, live music, and a vintage motor car show.

Since we’re only around the corner, after you’ve been to the fair, why not pop into our show centre and take a look at our range of Garden Studios that you can work on your own vintage crafts in, or Summerhouses that you can place some of your new vintage wares inside.

Spades in SandEastbourne International Airshow

For a more fast-paced, loud, adrenalin thumping type of fun, the Eastbourne International Airshow is taking place on the Eastbourne seafront on the 17th-20th August.

Airbourne is always guaranteed family fun, with incredible air displays, and this year they have got members of the RAF, British Army, and the Royal Navy on the ground for you to meet, play areas on the beach for children to play on, trade stands to peruse, musical entertainment on the Bandstand, and plenty more.

There is certainly plenty going on in the coming weeks across East Sussex, so depending on your tastes and interests, 2017 will be a summer of both interesting and fun adventures.
