Community organisations and business have come together in an exhibition which forms a backdrop to arena events at the Uckfield Festival Big Day Out.
Luxfield Field is at the heart of the day’s celebrations with activities including displays by Universal Dance, TSM Martial Arts, Debs Dancers and Spirit Elite.
Crossfit, The Sussex String Band, and inChoir are also taking part and there are two chances – at noon and 2.30pm – to see Culinary Duel, described as a cook-off like no other, including physical humour, high energy dance, acrobatics and innovative audience participation.
At 2pm the children’s procession is due to arrive on the field having made its way from Uckfield Community Technology College down into town and back up the hill again and along Library Way.
Here are some pictures from the day so far. (Video, pictures and story about the children’s procession now available here: Children dazzle in Uckfield Festival parade)
AT BRIDGE COTTAGE
There was a chance to sample Medieval punishments at Bridge Cottage today (July 9).
In the courtyard was a pillory and stocks, with an opportunity to throw wet sponges at the miscreants.
