OF2015 cover

The OctoberFeast 2015 programme is hitting the streets.

Look out for this striking front-cover to be distributed throughout Lewes along with September edition of Viva Lewes. Our programme will also be available to pick up in shops, cafés and venues in Lewes and beyond, but if you don’t manage to get your hands on a physical copy, don’t fret. You can read it online via Issuu and peruse our events listings here.


The OctoberFeast Street Food Feast, held in the iconic venue of Harveys Brewery back yard, plays host to a handpicked selection of the best international street food traders in our area. Coming 26th Sept 2015.


We invite companies, groups and individuals to think how they might earn money, and have fun, by hosting an event during OctoberFeast. It could be a screening, talk, workshop or conceptual menu. Anything goes.


Each year the most hospitable and daring home cooks in Lewes open their doors as part of our programme of pop-up suppers. Each event is personalised: busy or intimate, formal or conceptual – all are unique.


Check out the OctoberFeast blog for recipes, interviews and details of how to get the most out of this year’s festival.
