Uckfield Festival stages colourful children’s parade

Children from schools in the Uckfield area staged a colourful children’s parade through the town this afternoon (July 7) as part of the annual festival.

The parade, on the theme of Space and the Fantastical, leaves Uckfield Community Technology College at 1.30pm arriving at Luxford Field, via the High Street, at about 2pm.

Primary schools, Uckfield Community Technology College, Spiritus Carnival Arts Group and Uckfield Performance Ensemble were among those taking part

Same Sky, which organises community arts projects, has developed the theme of Time to produce a brilliant splash of colour .

The march went through the High Street and ended on the Luxford Field where around 100 stalls were set out from charities, local groups and businesses, plus a series of events in the ring.
