The Sixth Annual
wvd

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.

This year’s theme is “Heroes” and we are asking for as many people as possible to dress up for the parade. Read more…

There’s plenty more information available on the site, but here’s a brief run down of the events:
