The three-day event will take place on June 25, 26, 27.

With help from local businesses, Eastbourne councillors and the council events team, Feastival will go ahead the weekend after lockdown restrictions are due to be lifted.

The Feastival events team have worked tirelessly to make sure that this popular event continues.

A spokesperson for the Feastival team said: “We want Feastival to be a success for the local people because after six years of great family festivals we didn’t want to throw in the towel and give up so easily especially as we’ve seen so many other events cancelled.

“Each year we choose a local charity to support helping raise extra money and awareness for those that deserve extra help, and this year we have joined forces with Defiant Sports.”

Defiant Sports is a community-based hub providing sports and activities for young children with long term conditions or disabilities. The group also supports adults with learning disabilities.

The spokesperson said: “The Defiant team are a not-for-profitable organisation so for their selfless hard work we have chosen to support them.”

There will be a wide range of food stalls and live entertainment throughout the four days.

The event promises to be fun for all the family and will include a large funfair, activities, displays, bars and market traders Tickets must be purchased to attend the event but the Feastival team is offering hardworking NHS staff free entry.

The spokesperson said: “We are offering NHS staff free entry to our event as a thank you for the continuous care they give to our local residents.

“This year, as an extra gesture of good will, Feastival is also offering free entry to all children under the age of 16 to make the family festival more affordable in what has been a financially difficult time for many.”
