Events coming up in the Uckfield area

This is the season for pantomime and parties and you’ll find all the festive fun you need in Uckfield. Here’s an idea of what’s going on.

Jack and the Beanstalk pantomime launched at Uckfield Civic Centre yesterday and there are more performances today and tomorrow.

Today is party day at Barney’s Play with a Toddler Bop from 11am-1pm, and a Christmas party from 5-7pm.

It’s the Save the Children Christmas Jumper Day today and the team at Ridgewood Post Office and Stores will be throwing themselves into fund-raising for the cause.

Sue Gothard, who runs the shop with husband Jon, has been knitting mini jumpers for bunting and for customers who would like to make a donation to have one. All the staff will be wearing Christmas jumpers too as part of the fun.

Tomorrow there’s a Cacao Ceremony at Uckfield Yoga Studio. This is a Mayan tradition with the singing of ancestral chants of Latin America. Read more on Uckfield Events.

On Sunday there will be a spectacle in Uckfield as members of the Sussex Association of Bonfire and Carnival Societies hold their carol service at Holy Cross Church.

They will parade through town to the church after starting in Harcourt Road at 2.30pm.

Next week on Wednesday there will be Carols at The Alma Arms when the Uckfield Singers visit and on Saturday, December 22, there will be a Children’s Christmas Party at The Highlands Inn.

Also on Saturday, 22, there will be a Midwinter Stillness workshop at Uckfield Yoga Studio.

In the New Year a variety of ten-week courses are starting in the Uckfield. They are being organised by the Adult College for Rural East Sussex and you can read about them here: New Year – New Challenges.

Don’t forget you can find Sussex Christmas Barn at Barcombe and Father Christmas is now in his grotto at The Llama Park.
