What is Proms in The Paddock?


Proms in the Paddock is a unique and hugely popular event that is brought to you each summer by Commercial Square Bonfire Society, supported by Herbert Scott. It all takes place in 'The Paddock', a long established playing field in the heart of Lewes, surrounded by beautiful trees and overlooked by Lewes' historic castle.

Gates open at 3pm when you'll be able to find the ideal spot in the Paddock and grab a pint and something to eat from the cake and BBQ stands. From 4pm you will be entertained by our great musical line up, consisting of the 'The Lewes Glynde and Beddingham Brass Band' plus a number of special guests.

This year, we are fortunate to be joined by three such guests, Rock Choir, South Coast Soul Revue and The Pepperheads. Read more about our Bands on the Bands page

Proms in the Paddock is once again generously supported by Herbert Scott. More information can be found on Our Supporters page

What Else is there to do?...


There's plenty to do before the music starts and during the intervals. CSBS run an excellent bar where you can stock up with Harveys, Cider, Pimms and a range of wines and spirits.

We run a BBQ stall where you can buy tasty burgers and sausages supplied by Richards Butchers of Lewes. Tea and coffee is on sale along with a great selection of cakes.

There's also plenty of attractions to keep the kids busy including a tombola, sideshows and a sweet shop, plus a large open space for them to run around in.

The Bands



Rock Choir

Rock Choir


Award-winning national phenomenon, Rock Choir was the first contemporary choir of its kind offering an accessible and inclusive experience for amateur singers and has now become a household name. With over 33,000 members in over 400 local communities, it offers an alternative experience to the traditional classical or community choir, with its uplifting ethos of fun, friendship and community spirit being a huge part of attraction. At an individual level, it helps improve people's well-being by building their self-confidence and self-esteem.

There are no auditions and no requirement to read music when joining Rock Choir. Everyone is welcome and can sign up for a FREE taster session by visiting www.rockchoir.com or call 01252 714276 for further information.


The Pepperheads

The Pepperheads


Treat yourself to some hot moshin' beats. One of the best young bands from Starfish Studios, the Pepperheads play funky, groove driven indie rock. Think Red Hot Chiili Peppers meets Radiohead, The Beatles and the MC5. Grab a cider and get down to the front. Get ready for the Pepperheads.


South Coast Soul Revue

South Coast Soul Revue


There are Funk and Soul covers bands and then there is the South Coast Soul Revue. Back by popular demand, a high energy 8-piece, fully live band guaranteed to give you a dazzling mix of everything you need for your wedding, birthday party, celebration, or special event.

South Coast Soul Revue brings you classic and contemporary tracks and we guarantee you’ll be dancing your socks off to our super tight guitars, drums, bass, full horn section and keys; all fronted by outstanding male and female vocals.


LGB Brass in 2022

Lewes Glynde and Beddingham Brass


The Lewes, Glynde & Beddingham Brass Band (LGB for short) is based at the All Saints Centre in Lewes. We are a traditional brass band with a wide ranging repertoire. You’ll hear everything from traditional marches (like the ones we play in the Lewes Remembrance Parade) to virtuosic solos, original brass band music, orchestral transcriptions, music from stage and screen and pop songs. We play at local fetes and weddings as well as Eastbourne Bandstand and put on our own concerts. All the details are on our website https://www.lgbbrass.co.uk . The main band welcomes new players and particularly percussionists.

We also have a thriving group for learners called BrassSparks. Qualified brass music teachers help those that want to learn to play a brass instrument and also offer a chance to play in an ensemble. You can sign up for our quarterly newsletter on our website.
