The Annual Chiddingly Festival
Chiddingly Festival is a remarkable phenomenon. Now entering its 34th year, it is a feast of the arts, run entirely by volunteers, yet attracting big name and quirky acts in a wide range of genres. Music, dance, beer, sculpture, comedy, graphic arts, theatre, story-telling and poetry for all ages all feature regularly.
The tiny rural village of Chiddingly is in East Sussex, between Lewes and Hailsham, North of Eastbourne. Like many small rural villages, life revolves around the Church, the Village Hall and the pub - and our new village shop!. Map
This is a quite amazing festival for such a small village, the festival is an event that makes Chiddingly unique. As always, the festival starts with a full peal of bells from the tower of Chiddingly Village Church.
