Steyning Country Fair takes place every other year on the Bank Holiday Monday at the end of May. The next fair will be in 2021.
What happens at the fair?
This is always a wonderful day out for all the family. Steyning High Street is closed to traffic and lined with stalls, entertainment and displays. There is a special sense of times past, with traditional costumes, crafts, food, Morris dancing, music, magicians, puppet shows and livestock.
There are fair rides and raffles, the dog show and the traditional cricket match. The Steyning Centre becomes an exhibition hall. You can treat yourself to food and drink all day from street stalls, local pubs, shops and restaurants.
A lovely event. Make sure you are at the next one!

‘Brighton Festival has been at the forefront… an arts festival that makes connections with the real world’ The Times
Brighton Festival is a popular annual event: It takes place in a variety of venues across Brighton & Hove each May. Join the celebration of music, theatre, dance, circus, art, film, literature, debate, outdoor and family events!
Leading Arts Festival
Established in 1967, the festival has become one of Europe’s leading arts festivals. It has an ambitious and daring programme which makes the most of the city’s distinctive cultural atmosphere. It draws on some of the most innovative artists and companies from the UK and across the world.
Hopefully Brighton Festival will be able to run in 2021. It usually opens with the popular Children’s Parade, produced in partnership with a Brighton based community arts charity.
‘Brighton Fridge’ events usually run throughout May from the 1st to 31st.
