Late Night Shopping

We had yet another fruitful evening in the Harvey's Yard at their annual Late Night Shopping Christmas celebrations! Thank you to Edmund and the team for inviting us to exhibit and engage with the local shoppers (and beer drinkers)!  There were many expressions of interest on a wide range of Sussex Traditions. We look forward to working with the Harvey's team again in the New Year when the John Harvey Tavern will host our Traditional Song Forum Sing-Around. (See our events listing for more details).
