Latest Information

Due to an unforeseen personal emergency, this year’s Festival of the Sea has had to be cancelled. Sadly, this includes the Mermaid Pageants, Chris Leslie concert and the Craft Marquee. All who have made bookings will receive letters and any payments returned.

The Committee would like to thank Rother District Council, the Town Council, SLM Group and all who have given support to the Sea Festival. This decision has not been taken lightly but is unavoidable. We will be back bigger and brighter than ever.

See you next year! In the meantime, help keep our beaches safe and clean and be kind to wildlife and of course, each other.

The Angling Competitions are still going ahead this year, and more information can be found via the button below.
