As the lovely summer season is fast approaching, we decided to write a little blog post dedicated to the events and fun activities that will be happening in West Sussex between May and September.
We are all exhausted seeing and hearing negative news and announcements and we all need some positive vibe in our lives.
For that reason, we did a little research and found some amazing and super fun events in the area.
There is so much to choose from but here is what we think might be great fun for the whole family.
For the Last three years Cuckfield has been popular with a very well organised and extremely entertaining music festival.
For more information, dates and times of the events please check the link:
Lewes is a great hub for the creative people, so they hold a great Craft market every second Saturday of the month where they are showcasing a wide range of high-quality crafts produced by the local craftspeople. It starts from 10am and finishes around 4pm.
The place is:
Market Tower, Market Street

Super colourful, full of positive energy space for all retro lovers.
For those who are handy and love spending time in the nature, we can suggest a very creative and hands on workshop at Wakehurst.

Sounds so promising and delicious. There will be plenty to do and even the little ones will be entertained with craft workshops, football penalty competition, soft play and a lot more.

The Maestro – Magichour Theatre is a spin-off from the parent film company, and its production of ‘Whatever Happened to Lyn Roe’ won critical acclaim at the Edinburgh Festival. It returns to Brighton Fringe after its success with ‘Marilyn the Musical’ with this new production dealing with Gaetano Donizetti, a neglected master of Italian opera. ‘The Maestro’ deals with the triumphs and tragedies of his life, and features live performance by an opera singer of some of his wonderful arias, as well as portraying his life and times.
