Uckfield Festival will not be beaten by COVID!Online festival Club July 10- 19

Great new music gigs!

Everyone in Uckfield is so sad that the COVID situation has prevented us from holding live events in the town. But the Festival committee has been determined that the town should not be denied the chance to hear some top-quality music, including our wonderful local performers. So they have arranged that the Festival Club will go online during the Festival period to present some specially commissioned performances just for the people of Uckfield!

Watch out for some great music!

Full programme to be announced soon!
