Welcome to the Twentieth Uckfield Festival!
Things have come a long way since that first event held to mark Millennium Year 2000. But some key features have remained same – such as the much-anticipated Children’s Street procession which will be its usual riot of colour and sound to the High Street on July 6. Be there!
And on the same day Luxford Field will overflow with stalls as our community comes together for a day of music, children’s events, dance and some of the wackiest street entertainment- Uckfield’s Big Day Out!
The Festival Club has free gigs every evening throughout the week in the Luxford Lounge. The Club provides a showcase for local talent, often at the start of their careers. It was at the Festival Club that an unknown named Rory Graham performed some of his first gigs. Rory Graham is now better known as Rag’n’Bone Man!! Come and spot the stars of tomorrow!
Watch out this year for the classic car show on Sunday 7 July.
Saturday evening 13 July features a fun picnic evening of music and fireworks hosted by the Rugby Club.
And to finish off the ten days of fun we have a very special event on Sunday 14- the music of George Harrison played by the wonderful ten piece “All Things Must Pass Orchestra.” Be sure to book early for this!
Lots, lots more – keep up to date by following us by following us on Facebook.
