Extra Info:

Ditchling Beacon is the third-highest point on the South Downs in south-east England, behind Butser Hill (270 m; 886 ft) and Crown Tegleaze (253 m; 830 ft). It consists of a large chalk hill with a particularly steep northern face, covered with open grassland and sheep-grazing areas. Situated just south of the East Sussex village of Ditchling and to the north-east of the city of Brighton, it is the highest point in the county of East Sussex. A road runs from Ditchling up and across the northern face and down into the northern suburbs of Brighton, and there are car parks at the summit and the northern base. Various charity, sporting and other events which are run regularly between London and Brighton incorporate this steep road as a challenging part of their route.

Come to our All-day Fund Raising Garden Party for Fun in Action on Sat 27th June - 12pm to 10pm. There's going to be a great line up of musicians to entertain you, including nine live acts, DJ’s between sets, two barbeques with veggie and non veggie food options, craft and plant stalls, beer, games for the kids, a raffle, lucky dip and two five foot ‘body puppets’ dancing around to keep things jolly! Loads of activities for children including a lucky dip, stalls and games.

Entry to the event is free but guests will be asked for voluntary contributions to a ‘hat’ that will go round during the day. In case of wet weather the event will still go ahead under cover.
