​

We are delighted to welcome you to the third year of Summer Trifle events and this year we are generously supported by the National Lottery Community Fund.

Why Summer Trifle? We could think of no better word than Trifle to describe this wonderful mixture of arts, crafts, open gardens, entertainment and cake.... and it all began one summer.

Step into the grounds of Pickhams and enter a world of creativity. Meet artists, take part in the workshops covering health, arts and crafts and be entertained with live music and more.

Once again we have included events that you can do ‘together’ - kids with parents or grandparents, carers and their dependents. We also have a special day run by the Association of Carers.

Back by popular demand are our Edwardian Teas on selected days. On Saturday 10th August there is a free bus service running between Pickhams and the local stations, villages and towns.

Entrance is free to the gardens and the exhibitions and to some of the events but donations are invited. Tickets are on sale for live music and other productions and most workshops must be booked in advance. See inside for details.

We do hope you enjoy your visit.

This year our exhibitors include Tom and Anna Acciarini and Alison Cotton, Lucy Dean and Stacey Read. Walk around the gardens and you will see sculptures and art installations including Reach by Keith Pettit and Fish by Felicity Price Smith.

The Pickhams Award

The Summer Trifle Committee have decided it is time to give an award, the Pickhams Award, to the performance or creation that sums up the essence of Sussex. This can be a photograph, a painting, drawing, a piece of craft or 3D work, writing, song ... anything that has been created, performed or exhibited at Pickhams.

​

On the buses!

Cuckmere Community Buses provide transport links to many villages including Alfriston, Ripe, Waldron, East Dean and Polegate and also operate Town Bus services in Hailsham & Seaford as well as Leisure Services through the South Downs National Park. Everyone in the organisation is a volunteer. We are pleased to have the CCB running a free bus just for us on Saturday 10th August. Hop on and try it out.

CHILDREN - Children are very welcome but must be accompanied at all times. Warning - there is an unfenced pond and stream. The garden walls, structures, sculptures and art installations are not suitable for climbing on or playing near.

DOGS - Well behaved dogs on leads are welcome - please clear up any mess.

SAFETY - Although we have done our best to ensure the safety of all visitors, the gardens contain many crazy paving pathways which are, by nature, uneven so please take care. There are a few small steps and the lawned areas and field are uneven in places. We have deliberately left areas to grow wild to encourage wildlife. Please do not pick any flowers or take cuttings from plants.

ACCESS - If you are coming by car, there is field parking on site including disabled parking by the marquee. All vehicles are parked at your own risk. Disabled access is limited in a very few areas of the gardens due to steps. Hayreed Lane is a single track, no through road. Drive slowly and be prepared to give way - please be considerate of our neighbours’ driveways and verges.
