We are delighted to welcome you to the fifth year of Summer Trifle events (we had a year off when we went ‘virtual’ in 2020) and this year we are generously supported by The Chalk Cliff Trust.
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….
Step into the grounds of Pickhams and enter a world of creativity. Meet artists, watch craft demonstrations and be entertained with live music and more.
We’ve teamed up this year with Hailsham Artists Network who are running the Meet the Makers Marquee on all 3 days, plus there will be craft demonstrations on Sunday and Monday. Compass Community Arts will once again be participating with visual arts and poetry. The inaugural Sussex Songwriter’s Festival takes place as part of Summer Trifle on Saturday 27th August and on Sunday 28th, Bluebell Roots moves to Pickhams from its usual home of the Bluebell Kitchen in Arlington. On Monday we’ll host a Spoken Word Open Mic in the walled garden which will be followed by another hilarious loosely veiled Gilbert & Sullivan spoof by Slap & Tickle Theatre.
Entrance to the gardens is £5 (under 12’s free) and includes a hot drink or a soft drink. We will Pass the Hat on Saturday and Monday afternoon for the Open Mics, in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support. Tickets are on sale now for the evening live music and other productions..
We do hope you enjoy your visit and will come back and visit Pickhams again for future events.
