Returning in 2019 with a packed family event with an exciting ‘Circus’ theme, the team behind Wivelsfield Village Day are inviting you to ‘Roll Up! Roll Up!’ for a day bursting with fun and entertainment from 10:30am

NEW FOR 2019 the event – held on Wivelsfield Village Green – will play host to Panic Circus, who will be running FREE circus workshops and shows throughout the day. Kids and adults alike can try their hand at juggling, tightrope-walking or unicycling and enjoy the exciting shows including Punch and Judy, aerial performance and knife throwing!

Village Day 2019 will also see the welcome return of Harris’ Traditional Fun Fair, Burgess Hill Marching Youth Band, the Falconry School, Miniature Steam Railway, Fun Family Dog Show and much more – including vintage vehicles, arena fun and games, and well over 50 trade and gift stalls from local businesses, clubs and groups.

Visitors will be able to enjoy delicious food from the food court – featuring a mouth-watering selection of street-food traders and sweet treats, relax with a drink from the bar and then sit back and get ready to enjoy the live music at the 3rd annual ‘On The Green’ music festival.

Now in its third year and running from 3pm until late, the On The Green music festival is featuring a fantastic line-up of local and national talent, including ‘The Luck’, ‘Arcade Hearts’, ‘ORFILA’, ‘40 Shillings on the Drum’ and local cover band ‘Orange’.  

“We’re absolutely delighted to be hosting such a varied and exciting event” said James Gander, one of the Village Day team.  “Village Day is the largest community event in the calendar and we’re excited that Village Day 2019 will be packed full of entertainment that we hope will include something for everyone. It’s not just for Wivelsfield residents… come and join in the fun!”
