Ditchling Fair - Evening Events

As late afternoon turns into evening, there is no let up for Ditchling Fair. There will be music, dance, fine food and drink, laughter, family fun and non stop happiness as we party into the late night.


Unreel Ceilidh Band

We are very excited to welcome back the Unreel Ceilidh Band to kick off our evening festivities.

Based in Sussex, the brilliant Unreel have a great reputation for creating
a barnstorming night to remember. The Band will invite you to ‘do-si-do’ or ‘strip the willow’ with your partner.

The dances are simple, bouncy – and quick to learn so that you can get on and enjoy yourself.


Ditchling Morris
Procession up Lodge Hill

You can get involved with the celebrations when the Ditchling Morris go for a pre-solstice dance up to the top of Lodge Hill to watch the sunset.
