Tickets now available online here| Last.fm | Facebook | Map
A Willkommen mini festival with two stages at the beautiful Stanmer House. The Grade I listed building was built in 1722 and is in the middle of a Sussex nature reserve, but also just a 5-10 minute walk from Falmer train station or University of Sussex bus stops.
Originally at Charleston House, this event has now moved to the even more suitable Stanmer House – with one big benefit. We can now have a second performance area so we’ll be announcing many more acts ASAP.
