Please visit the village website for details of other local village events www.arlingtonvillage.co.uk
There is also the annual Hailsham Festival which may be of interest.

The Arlington Art & Craft show will be on 10th and 11th May 2014 - booking details will be on the website in the new year. We do not intend to have a full Arts Festival in 2014 but watch this space as we may add some other arts events to the Art & Craft Show weekend  if volunteers step forward....

Road diversions...

Look out for possible road diversions the week of the Arts Festival. South East Water have decided to close the roads to lay new mains water pipes. They can't be specific about dates and MAY be finished by the 22nd/23rd June but the possibilities are that either the road into Arlington from Hailsham direction will be closed by Abbots Wood so follow diversions past Michelham Priory, down past Berwick Station, then LEFT to Arlington (don't keep going to the A27) OR the road from Wilmington to Arlington will be closed in which case continue down the A27 to the Drusillas roundabout, turn right to Berwick station and right to Arlington Village.

Apologies for any problems or inconvenience but it's out of our control and we're limited as to what signage we are going to be able to put up due to the diversion signs!
