A huge thank you to everyone who got involved and came along to the Puddings and Pathways Festival! With the success of the festival and the rejuvenated revival of the 31 mile 1066 Country walk from Pevensey to Rye we have a lot to celebrate!
We launched the puddings and Pathways Festival to celebrate the regeneration of the walk. By Autumn 2021, walkers will be ale to find new signage dotted around, new information panels, new benches and ten sculptures by local artist Keith Pettit.
We lured peckish walkers to eateries along the path who then created 1066 puddings specifically for the festival. We also chucked in some fabulous street performers for our fellow audience!
