Uckfield Events – Financial drop-in session, Christmas fairs and Santa Specials

A financial drop-in session, Christmas fairs, Santa Specials at the Bluebell Railway and a children’s fun day at the Civic Centre – these are some of the events coming up in the Uckfield area.


The financial surgery is being held by Cranwell Wealth Solutions today at the Civic Centre and all are welcome to ask any queries which will be answered without obligation.

Also today Harlands Primary School is holding an open day for children aged 4+ who will be starting school in September 2020.

Framfield Christmas Fair takes place this evening in the Memorial Hall with attractions including Santa’s Grotto and Selfridges Gift Shop. Read more here.

Tomorrow (Saturday):

Tomorrow, Saturday, Santa Specials are running at the Bluebell Railway. Santa and his elves will be on board with a present and chocolate treat for all the children and a mince pie for grown-ups.

The free Christmas Saturday Fun event at the Civic Centre will include bouncy castle, inflatable assault course, face-painting, puppets, Christmas crafts and refreshments.

Also tomorrow Nutley Christmas Market takes place, a Christmas Fayre is being held at Uckfield College, and Bonners Christmas Fayre takes place too.

And at South Brockwells Farm, Little Horsted, there’s a free game taster day from 11am to 3pm.


If the thought of an hour-and-a-half of relaxation appeals then a Gong Bath with Claire on Sunday will be just the thing for you. You will simply lie down on mats provided, wrap up in a blanket and soak up the sounds of gongs and more.

During the week

A variety of events take place this week at The Grove Farmhouse Cafe in Blackboys. Monday brings the opportunity to Get Crafty, Elevenses on Tuesday is all about socialising, there’s a book group meeting on Wednesday morning, and a creative writing session during the afternoon.
