We have had two stunning events during this Fairtrade Festival. 180 students from all the Schools and Colleges in Burgess Hill put on a Fairtade Variety show which was fantastic and played to a full College hall and on Sunday evening George Alagiah hosted a Fairtrade debate with local politicians which was very stimulating and interesting. About 150 people turned up - who said public meetings were dead.
 
We are now on the final run in to our big festival weekend with some of the biggest names in Acoustic music coming to the Martlets Hall on Friday and Sunday and a really popular ceilidh band on Saturday evening.
 
BOOKING LINE 01444 242888.
Please come along and support Fairtrade and Stop The Traffik and have a brilliant time as well (invite some friends as well)!
