A Sporting History of Sussex: from the amazing to the bizarre

By Mathew Homewood

Thursday 9th June at 7pm

Mat Homewood takes a light-hearted look at the history of sporting events in Sussex. Sport has been a key feature of Sussex life throughout the centuries, with cricket, football and horse racing being commonplace events, as well as the much-loved Sussex game of stoolball. However, local village sports days were also host to many lesser-known sporting activities. These included jingling matches, menagerie races and piano bashing. Mat will regale us with tales of all these events, and more, in an entertaining and informative talk, full of wonderful photographs.

Please note, we do not issue physical tickets for our events. Please bring with you some form of identification to show the front desk when you arrive.
