On Friday night – 8th December – there is a new addition to the Ditchling pre-Christmas calendar. The ‘Festival of Light’ will start at 6.15 with a Swedish Lucia festival in the church. At 7pm, adjourn to The Barn on The Green for glogg, buns and wine tasting. We will also have a stall there representing the artists and makers of The Turner Dumbrell Workshops. After that, there will be carols around the tree by the crossroads in the centre of the village. All shops will be open until 9pm.
