With an Elvis tribute act, Ghostbusters, radio-controlled fun cars, Punch and Judy and a host of vintage cars, the Staplefield Village Fete is back again this year, promising to be bigger and better than ever. 

The event takes place on the spring Bank Holiday Monday 28th May 2018 between midday and 4.30pm in the beautiful setting of Staplefield Village Green.

This popular event has been a village highlight since the 1920s and draws people from near and far.  

The fete will open with a display of Maypole Dancing by St Mark’s School, and entertainment throughout the day will be provided by the fantastic big band sound of the Perdido Players.

Cuckfield Nuclear Bunker open weekends in 2013

Cuckfield Museum is again helping to organise visits to the village’s Cold War bunker.

Open Weekend dates for 2013: June 22nd -23rd, July 27th-28th, Aug 24th -25th and Sept 28th -29th.
