Heading back to normality? Uckfield Festival has been a Summer event at the centre of Uckfield life since the first one in the year 2000.
During pandemic year, in 2020, of course, it had to be cancelled but the Festival Committee are keen to have things up and running again for Festival 2021 which will be between 10th and 17th July 2021.
Plans are in place for the traditional Big Day on Luxford Field on Saturday 10th July, a large Classic Cars event at the same venue on Sunday 11th July, and a repeat of the popular Proms on the Pitch with outdoor concert performances and a firework finale, on the pitches of Uckfield Rugby Club. Other events are being considered. The Kit Car Grand Prix may be run again in a smaller format.
The Festival has always tried to provide a way for community organisations and local charities and businesses to showcase themselves at the Big Day. The Festival has also usually provided a great opportunity for local musical talent to breakthrough to a larger recognition. This may be reduced this year as we may not be able to have as many indoor events.
There are opportunities to support Uckfield Festival by sponsoring activities during the week in any way you can. It has been a tough year for many, but we believe that the town needs to have something to look forward too.
