Ditchling Morris

  • Morning Fair - In West Street for 2018

    Demo Post

    The Morning Fair starts at around 8.30am in the closed-to-traffic West Street. The Wizard will wake up the village, with the bells of St Margarets acting as our snooze alarm. There will be stalls of food, produce and information available - come and have your Fair-day breakfast in Ditchling's West Street. 

    The Fair Proclamation will be read by The Rev. David Wallis and the bestowing of the Village Gems.

    Ditchling Morris and their guest Side, Knots of May, will entertain you with a variety of energetic dances.

    Ditchling Mummers (as previously seen outside the Ditchling Museum on Boxing Day) will perform a Sussex play of battle and intrigue.

    The world-famous Jack & Jill Race will take place - all-comers, suitably dressed, are welcome.

    Other music and entertainment will be arranged.

    Fair Programmes with full timings are £1.00 and are available from around the village.

About Ditchling Fair

In 1312 King Edward II granted John de Warenne, Lord of the Manor, the right to run a Fair in Ditchling 'in the eve and in the day and in the morrow of St Margaret the Virgin' and thus was to be celebrated on July 20th.
