The show is perfectly timed for Christmas shopping and, with over fifty members of The Sussex Guild showing their beautiful and varied work, visitors will be spoilt for choice.

The café within the show area will provide light refreshments throughout the weekend. More substantial fare can be found in the cafés, hotels and pubs in this delightful medieval town.
