Great things to do in Sussex this weekend: art exhibitions, walks, concerts, theatre, places to visit and other events and ideas.

Details of events correct at time of publishing.

Hair - Until Saturday 24 February

Brighton Theatre Group, The Old Market, Hove

Brighton Theatre Group (BTG) celebrates its 50th anniversary in February 2018 by presenting Hair, the ground-breaking musical of the 1960s. It is a show built on optimism, with songs that fill your heart and songs that will break it. Based in New York’s Greenwich Village, it tells the story of a group of flower children fighting a peaceful revolution – a movement as relevant today as it was then. Times vary. Tickets: £15-£18.50, concessions available.


George Egg - DIY Chef - Friday 23 February

Chequer Mead Theatre, De La Warr Road, East Grinstead


Annual Art Sale - Until Saturday 24 February

Green Tree Gallery, Borde Hill Garden, Haywards Heath

The Annual Art Sale is the traditional start to the gallery’s year and 2018 marks the start of their tenth birthday celebrations. Regular artists are selling their work at greatly reduced prices, including paintings, sculptures, glasswork, jewellery and ceramics. To celebrate its birthday, the gallery is supporting Sussex children’s hospice Chestnut Tree House throughout 2018. As well as donating ten per cent of takings on the opening day of the sale to the hospice (and on all 2018 exhibition launch days), the gallery is also planning a series of fundraising events.


Rye Bay Scallop Week - From Saturday 24 February
