Festival Weekend – 3rd & 4th September 2022
There is something for everyone at the Bexhill Festival of the Sea!
We look forward to welcoming you to our event, where marine and wildlife conservation sit at the very heart of what we do. Throughout the weekend, members of several conservation associations will guide us on ways we can all help improve the world in which we live.
Join us at the festival as we showcase the skills of chefs from our local restaurants. Enjoy browsing around over 50 stalls highlighting local Sussex produce and global cuisine, English wines and arts & crafts. You won’t fail to be entertained with a full line up of a continuous variety of dance and first class live music.
During Saturday’s event, experience the spectacle of Mermaids/Mermen and MerBabies attempting the World Record for the Largest Gathering of Mermaids. Come and see the lovely entries. Better yet, don a tail and join in the fun!
