On the afternoon of Sunday July 5th a family friendly festival – Railway Land Live! – will be marking the first anniversary of the creation of the Brighton and Lewes Downs Biosphere and showcasing the amazing variety of work that goes on at the Railway Land Wildlife Trust in close partnership with Lewes District Council.
The festival will have something for everybody, with activities ranging from the use of underwater webcams and guided walks around the Railway Land Local Nature Reserve to demonstrations of the way Minecraft has been used to engage young people with the site. Alongside this, an art exhibition by Lil Tudor Craig, puppet shows and live music mean that a lively afternoon is on the cards – and it’s all free!
Dr John Parry, Director of the Railway Land Project, said, ‘We are delighted that Patina have teamed up with us to give a little preview of the plans for this year’s South Downs wildlife themed Carnival of the Creatures Moving On Parade on 10 July, and the South Downs National Park bus will be there to provide a wider context. The point of the Festival is to celebrate the wildlife on our doorstep and the peace and pleasure this little reserve brings to so many people who use it in so many ways all the year round.’ Unfortunately due to prior commitment OART wont be able to attend the event but it is sure to be interesting and informative to those of all ages from Lewes and the wider area.
The Railway Land Live! Festival runs from 2-5pm at the Railway Land Local Nature Reserve, situated at the end of Railway Lane, Lewes BN7 2FG.
