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 two such guests, The Boogie Band and The Tar Babies. Read more about our Bands on the Bands page

In addition to Herbert Scott's generous backing, we are delighted that the Proms in the Paddock is also supported by Richard Green Funeral Service. 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.
