2020 Event Cancelled

The 9th annual Bexhill Festival of the Sea, as always, is planned for the first weekend in September. It was hoped that we could bring you an event to celebrate renewed socialising and happier times. Due to the unprecedented circumstances surrounding the current pandemic and out of concern for the safety and well-being of our volunteers, visitors, vendors and entertainers, we have, with deep regret, made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s event.

We continued to plan another great event but found it difficult during the lock down. Obtaining sponsorship, funding and advertising, to keep it free to enter, has been impossible with many local companies struggling. We can now promise you a great event for 4th and 5th September 2021 with an illuminated parade on 3rd September and welcome all to take part. Once again, we will welcome all our wonderful mermaids/mer-folk and bring you the greatest live music, food and crafts too. Please support local businesses to help them towards financial recovery.
Our new web site will be updated as more plans are confirmed, and information can also be found on our Facebook page.

Please remember to “Like” and follow us on Facebook.

We hope that you and your loved ones remain safe and well and we look forward to seeing you next year.
