Sussex’s typically busy events schedule is gradually returning, albeit in a socially-distanced form that we may not yet be used to. Here are 5 great events to consider this weekend

As we all know by now, all events mentioned are subject to cancellation at short notice so all links should be checked before you head out to the event

Seaford Head Guided Walk - September 26

“A storytelling walk in the South Downs. A time for slowing down and reconnecting with ourselves as we reconnect with nature. A gentle walk filled with stories and poetry picked for the landscape as we breathe in the nature surrounding us.”

The walk will be around five miles.

Eastbourne Autumn Beach Clean - September 25

“Since our Summer Beach Clean was such a success and we are continuing to be allowed to gather in small groups in gardens and public places, we can keep the momentum and take actions to make Eastbourne cleaner and more sustainable.”

To adhere to social distancing guidelines you will be required to select a certain part of the beach to clean.

Crawley Down Village Market - September 27

“Join us at the local village market in Crawley down and help us support small local businesses. We have up to 28 food and craft stalls and a coffee shop serving Jamaican cuisine, tea, coffee and cake.”

Entry is free.

Wine & Food Pairing Experience at Bluebell Vineyard - September 26

“Join us as we take you through the process of how we transform our grapes into internationally acclaimed sparkling wine, from vine to glass.”

The event starts at 1pm.

Eastbourne Walking Festival - September 25 - 27

“The Eastbourne Walking Festival has been reinvented into a ten day celebration of self-discovery. Whilst all of our 70+ guided walks have had to be cancelled, we will be promoting and encouraging people to take part in their own walks, in their own time and at their own pace.”
