The Bexhill Festival of the Sea
2nd and 3rd September

Bexhill Festival of the Sea, in its 6th year, celebrates life near the sea and offers something for everyone. The FREE to enter Festival kicks off with a brilliant weekend event next to the De La Warr Pavilion with over 50 stalls highlighting local Sussex produce and global seafood cuisine, English wine, arts & crafts, local charities, marine and wildlife conservation, cooking demonstrations, free angling coaching, children’s fun fair, dancing and a fantastic line up of live music.

On Saturday 2nd September the Festival beach will play host to a Guinness World Record attempt with the Largest Gathering of Mermaids. Mermaids, Mermen and MerBabies will grace the shore sponsored by SLM Motors and SLM Toyota. Don a tail and come along to help make this attempt reality.

To close the event is a very special concert with international stars - the fantastic Peter Knight’s Gigspanner and the wonderful Liane Carroll. Tickets are available on the De La Warr Pavilion web site.

Our very favourite seafood chef will join us with new recipes and will share the stage with Wild Feast cooking with foraged ingredients. Marine Conservation Society and Sussex Wildlife Trust brings the wonders of the oceans and will share their vast experience of our marine environment. All helping to protect our sea life and beaches for generations to come!

The Angling Festival presents four weeks of major competitions attracting hundreds of anglers. The challenges start on Monday 4th September. Competitions reflect all sea angling pursuits with beach, boat, kayak, specimen hunt, juniors and a bass specimen hunt. With conservation in mind, our beach matches are catch and release!

Come visit this popular family event in a beautiful coastal setting.
An ideal day out or a special weekend away.
