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)
