Railway Land Festival 2017

Sunday 18 June, Linklater Pavilion, Lewes, 11am-4pm, FREE

  Come and see Transition Town Lewes at this month's Railway Land Festival, held at the Linklater Pavilion. The theme of this year's festival is 'Balancing Act', focusing on the balance that needs to be struck across the world between conservation and development.

Transition Town Lewes will be demonstrating the benefits of rain gardens as a means of maintaining bio-diversity, managing pollution and mitigating flood risk in the face of greater urban development. The family-friendly festival will also include talks, films, puppet shows and story-telling for younger visitors plus plenty more in the beautiful surroundings of the Railway Land nature reserve.

Connecting up the dots

Saturday June 24th 2017 at the Subud Centre 26a Station Street, Lewes, 11am to 5pm.


A workshop to create a Transition network for the South East...

There are currently 19 Transition Towns in East Sussex and Kent, very few of which know about each other let alone have regular contact. The aim of the workshop is for representatives from each group in the area to share experiences, hopes, successes and failures, and explore if and how a regional network could work. It might be both achievable and beneficial, or a good idea in theory but not in practice. More...

Transition Town Lewes 10th Anniversary Celebration Night

How can we really change stuff?

Wednesday 5th July, 7.30pm (doors 7pm) at the Depot Cinema, Lewes. Tickets £10 (£5 concession) available from www.lewesdepot.org Includes complimentary drink.

Transition Town Lewes is 10 years old. You are warmly invited to join in the celebrations as TTL asks a panel of writers, economists and local activists the big question: In a world facing its most urgent challenges yet, how can we effect change for the better and do it fast?

Taking lessons of rapid transition from history and current examples of how local communities are working to transform lives, we hope to discover that the solutions to issues like climate change, resource scarcity and social inequality may not be as far away as we often think.

Held in Lewes' stunning new eco-built Depot community cinema and restaurant, with live music from funk reggae band Bring Back the Wolf plus seasonal food and drink available, it's going to be a lively, inspiring and thought-provoking evening - and we'd love you to be there.


Our panel of speakers are:

Andrew Simms - Author of 'Cancel the Apocalypse', 'Tescopoly' and co-director of the New Weather Institute

Howard Johns - Community energy champion, founder of Ovesco and author of 'Energy Revolution'

Alex Kirby - Former BBC Online environmental correspondent and a founder editor of Climate News Network

Helen Meade - Community co-ordinator for the Lewes Railway Land Trust

Zoe Wangler - Executive director of the Ecological Land Co-operative
