The Lewes Octoberfeast festival which supports creative and sustainable food culture in East Sussex is back for its sixth year, running from 18 September to 4 October. As part of this celebration, join us at The Keep on Saturday 26 September as we explore the history of food and drinking culture.

Contribute to the creation of a Sussex family recipe collection – bring along your own family recipe book and share that favourite dish that has been passed down through the generations.
