Organiser Sharon Blagrove, of Bentleys Events, said: ‘It is my pleasure to introduce a brand new yearly festival for Bexhill. I hope it will uplift people and give them something to look forward to after being in lockdown for so long. It is time for some fun.

“Charities have been hit very hard, so I wanted to give them an opportunity to join in and hopefully they will be well supported. The event has covid compliant measures and I want everyone to keep social distancing a priority, it is possible to have fun, and keep safe.”

Gates open at 10.30am on both days and admission is £5 adults on the gate. Under 16’s go free. It is being sponsored by Hastings Direct.
