Music Stage Installation
Look out for award-winning contemporary designer Morag Myerscough’s new work Belonging, celebrating the spirit of seminal 1960s Los Angeles artist Corita Kent whose work brought together a belief in the strength of creativity, togetherness, love and social justice. It will be Myerscough’s first-ever mobile installation: a bright, bold, touring bandstand programmed in conjunction with communities across Sussex.
Casablanca Steps 'Great Gatsby' Band
The Casablanca Steps are one of the most experienced and established troupe of talented musicians and entertainers, totally unequalled in their field. Their unique sound and three-part vocal harmonies, combined with a quintessentially English visual element of serious tongue-in-cheek humour, recreate the authentic musical ambience of the 1920s & 30s, when “The Charleston” was all the rage and the “swells” were “Putting on the Ritz”.
The Sheep Show
Don’t miss the fleecy fun of The Sheep Show, an educational and humorous live stage show starring a cast of ewes and rams and their two-legged MC. It’s a great way of learning about how the many breeds of sheep in the UK today have been bred over the centuries to produce the wool and meat that we rely on today. The Sheep Show is hugely popular so turn up early to make sure you get a seat! There are four shows per day so look out for timings at the Show.

Be Prepared Girl Guides
We have not doubt that you’ll be enthused by the terribly jolly Girl Guide duo ‘Val Keen’ and ‘Babs Eager’. With their jangling kit and ‘be prepared’ PMA (positive mental attitude), our street entertainers Val and Babs engage people in achieving their SEAS Guides badges. Whether ‘Ging Gang Goolying’, ‘Fit for Anything’ or simply ‘Doing My Best’, everyone is a badge winner and will enjoy the ridiculous and hilarious badge presentation ceremony.
Metrobus Double Decker
