Sunday 19th September 2021 | 11:00am - 4:00pm

Planet Party – 11am-4pm, Sunday 19 September,

Linklater Pavilion and Railway Land. FREE ADMISSION

Lewes Climate Hub, the Railway Land Wildlife Trust and Lewes Town Council have joined forces to organise  a family-friendly festival in Lewes to celebrate Planet Earth and explore the practical, positive actions we  can take individually, as a community and globally to help safeguard our world for future generations.

Taking place in and around the Linklater Pavilion and Railway Land Nature Reserve, Planet Party will feature  stalls, talks, entertainment and activities to engage visitors of all ages:

• A ‘Guardians of the Ouse’ boat regatta featuring members of Lewes Rowing Club will highlight how  we can all help protect our river and waterways

• Wishworks Puppets will be performing their Wild Wood Tales puppet show, engaging children of all  ages in exploring the magic of our woods and forests

• A Kids Climate Tent will feature a range of activities to get youngsters thinking about our impact on  the planet – from how we can create solar power to how some of our favourite toys are made • Stalls hosted by a range of local community groups and organisations will showcase ideas to live  sustainably from how we power our homes, to what we eat, to how we get around – and the fun and  simple actions we can take to protect our natural world.

• Talks will explore the impact of climate action on our planet – and what the world now needs to do to  tackle it.

• At the end of the day, a People’s Climate Assembly will give visitors an opportunity to say what  climate action they want to see locally, national and internationally.

The festival, which has free admission and will be opened by the Mayor of Lewes, will feature food by Seven  Sisters Spices and a Harvey Beer stall hosted by South Street Bonfire Society. Musical performance will  include the South Downs Folk Singers, pop-up buskers The Magnificent Kevins, Lewes String Quartet, and  local young singer-songwriter Henry Gerrard.
