Every year the whole village, friends and visitors get together to enjoy food, drink, local crafts, catch up with what’s happening in and around Wivelsfield, be entertained and generally have some fun.
The event seems to grow every year and is now really more of a Village Weekend than a Village Day with events on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
Plans for 2015 are still being finalised, but there’s plenty of information on the site about last year’s event to give you an idea of what to expect. We’ll update with 2015 details in the coming weeks.
