Eastbourne Lammas Festival
  • King Edwards Parade,
    East Sussex,
    BN21 4EH
The Eastbourne Lammas Festival is a pageant of morris dancing and live music from traditional and folk-rock to modern jazz.

Now in its 18th year, Eastbourne Lammas Festival just gets bigger and better. Each day starts with Morris dancing in differing styles.

As always, Saturday's Carnival parade at 12pm promises to be spectacular. Dancers, drummers and festival-goers in performances at the Pier before making their way along the prom and returning to the Western Lawns, the main festival site.

Anyone, of any age is invited to join the parade if they come along to the Pier entrance at noon, though children must be accompanied by an adult. Feel free to dress up! Raid your dressing-up boxes, strap on a pair of fairy wings or garland your hair with flowers and join in. The more the merrier!

Lie back and laze in the sun by the sea as you listen to the music. Bring a picnic or choose from the variety of food and drinks that are on offer over the weekend including a Real Ale beer tent.

With clothing, book, jewellery and craft stalls and demonstrations, plus children's entertainment from face-painting and story-telling to Mouse Town, and bouncy castle, there is something for everyone.

The festival annually raises money for the RNLI with a Lifeboat demonstration. Please give generously throughout the weekend.
