Want to know what’s happening in East Sussex this Halloween?

We are spoilt for seasonal events throughout the year in East Sussex. But none are quite as good as the events we have in the autumn (in our opinion anyway). From unmissable bonfire nights to stunning autumnal scenery, to spooky-themed celebrations, there is something for adults and children alike.

Whether you’re looking for somewhere to take your little ones in the half term, for the perfect pumpkin patch picture for Instagram or for a fun day out with friends and family, our round-up of Halloween events in East Sussex has got your back:
