Description

The word Lammas is the old English for Loaf Mass.  It is a celebration of the corn harvest and the earth’s bounty.

The Festival includes live music (folk, rock and jazz), a beer tent, Morris dancing, drumming and many stalls.  On the Saturday, there will be a parade from the pier, along the seafront, to the western lawns, starting a 12 noon.  This will include many people in fancy dress, giants and John Barleycorn.

The event is free but a collection is taken, with 50% in aid of Eastbourne RNLI.  The other 50% funds next year’s event.
