The Charities

This unique event is in aid of St Peter & St James Hospice and Rock2Recovery. The Hospice is located in Wivelsfield Green and provides invaluable care, both from its base and in the local community. Rock2Recovery assist servicemen, veterans and their families with stress and other mental illnesses. 100% of the profits from this evening are going to these two worthy charities and we hope to announce our total shortly after the event.

The Event

Your ticket, £20, includes a glass of Hindleap wine, a mealbox and two bingo strips!

Arrive any time between 6pm & 7:30pm for a seasonal, locally sourced mealbox from Spade & Spoon (Fletching) and a glass of Bluebell Vineyard‘s very own English Sparkling Wine, ‘Hindleap’. You will have the choice of their Rose or Seyval Blanc, both offering Summer flavours to compliment the evening.

As a guide, the seasonal mealbox will include brined Sussex free range Chicken breast, a barley & caramelised onion salad, sauerkraut carrot, a High Weald Dairy Feta & Tomato salad, a Pea & Mint mash and freshly cooked parsnip crisp. Here is a link to an example of the type of delicious mealbox you can expect: link.

You will be invited to eat, drink and admire the beautiful setting of the vineyard at your leisure so please do bring along a blanket and some snacks to make the evening even more special! To compliment the ambiance, local singer/songwriter Lucy Ellie Cooper will be performing background music.

We will be kicking off the bingo in the marquee at 7:30pm and have an array of prizes (contributions are most welcome!) up for grabs! There will also be an Auction for some amazing experiences and please bring cash to purchase additional bingo sheets, your dabber and drinks from our bar! Cash Only please.

This is a family friendly event, open to all ages, and we will cater to your dietary requirements as best we can, if we know of these before the event. The dress code is ‘casual’ or ‘smart casual’.

We would like to take this opportunity to personally thank Bluebell Vineyard for kindly donating their incredible venue to us, free of charge, for the evening. Our thanks also goes to our Title Sponsors, High Weald Dairy, who produce a range of delicious cow, sheep and goat cheeses from their base in Horsted Keynes.
