VENUE

LEWESLIVE is hosted north of Lewes, off the A26, heading towards Uckfield.

There are two entrances, one for those coming on foot and one for those with vehicles. All access points leading to the site are signposted and marshalled.

Arriving by car

If you’re driving to LEWESLIVE, the entrance is signposted off the A26 north of Lewes. All cars should enter the site via Lower Stoneham Farm entrance. The post code for sat navs is BN7 2HZ.

Parking

Our car park is located on grass fields and some parts have unmade road approaches that may not be suitable for all car suspensions. If you have any doubts about bring a low profile car, then maybe re-think your plans.

Arriving by Public Transport

The nearest train station to LEWESLIVE is Lewes Town Centre with connections to and from London and the south coast. There are taxi ranks outside but if you want to book one in advance try GM Taxis 01273 477567.

Brighton & Hove Buses have a regular route between Brighton and Tunbridge Wells. They all stop on the top road (Malling Hill, Church Lane). From there it’s less than a five minute walk on the flat and down the slope to the entrance. They also operate and late night and Sunday service. There are timetables available at www.buses.co.uk. On the Friday and Saturday (daytime) there’s also a local bus route for Malling Estate (Church Lane), this stop is about an extra minute away.

Although we are on the outskirts of Lewes, we are still in close proximity to a residential area, so are ask that you respect our neighbours before, during and after the event.

Alcohol

There is a licensed bar on site the ‘Torchmakers Thumb’ where you will find an excellent selection of real ales and ciders, including of course Lewes’ very own Harveys as well as a wide choice of both alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks including lagers, wine, spirits and soft drinks.

The bar is operated by our own team of volunteers from Cliffe Bonfire Society, and as such we are able to keep prices reasonable. It is unlikely you will find drinks anymore expensive than at your local, and all profits from the bar go to the society funds.

Catering

We have a variety of good quality food outlets on site serving the usual burgers, hot dogs, chips, jacket potatoes, ice-creams, donuts etc. We also hope to have additional outlets this year offering a wider choice of food but details of these are not yet confirmed.

You are welcome to have a BBQ in the camping area, but these must be raised off of the ground and attended at all times. All disposable BBQs and embers must be properly discarded after use.

If you want breakfast the burger wagons also serve breakfast rolls, sausage or bacon sandwiches, tea and coffee etc.

ONLY FOOD AND DRINK PURCHASED ON SITE CAN BE CONSUMED IN THE MAIN SIGNPOSTED ARENA.

Animals

Dogs are welcome, however we do not recommend you bringing them. The large numbers of people, loud music and unusual surroundings can upset the animals and cause them distress.

Any dog that is considered to be in this condition or found to be making a nuisance must be removed from the site. Dogs must be on a lead at all times whilst on the site.

Should you bring your dog(s) to the site, please ensure that you are fully responsible for them at all times, and that all mess is immediately cleared up. If you would like further advice on dog care for the event, please contact our friends at ‘The Dog Stop’ (www.thedogstop.co.uk)

Toilet Facilities

There are portable toilets on site but they are not illuminated after around 1am. If you’re camping, a torch would be recommended.

Recycling / Waste Disposal

There are recycling and waste disposals points around the site. You will also be supplied Green & Black sacks for your rubbish at the gate.
