MAY FAYRE

A decade of medieval magic will be celebrated at the fantastic Feast of St Pancras May Fayre which returns to Lewes Priory Park on Sunday May 20 2018  It’s Southover Bonfire Society’s 10th year of fun for all the family with some fabulous new attractions including none other than Attila The Stockbroker and his barnstormers and a pack of huskies to cuddle up to. There’s music and bonkers games to test your skills including smashing crockery, rolling swedes, splatting rats to win some great prizes. Or if you fancy swinging high in the sky then their popular Victorian swingboats are back again. Princess Aura will tell your fortune, we’ve got storytellers and craftspeople and you can watch fearsome re-enactors Spears of Andred show off their Viking swordsmanship. There’s loads of food and drink too.

10.30am until 4pm. Entry via Cockshut Road, Southover, Lewes, BN7 1HP.   www.facebook.com/LewesMayFayre/
