Lindfield Village Day – no 5th June event in 2021
Lindfield Village Day is the largest fundraising event (along with Lindfield Village Run) for Lindfield’s King Edward Hall – which is operated as a registered charity.
Due to the coronavirus pandemic Lindfield Village Day didn’t happen at all in 2020, and it should have been taking place this year on Saturday 5th June. However, co-chairs David Tingley and Katherine Alcock have announced that there will not be an event on that day.
“With Covid restrictions not quite lifted yet, and a strong desire on the team to do the right thing, we felt we couldn’t host an event in June,” David explained. “Although we all want to get back to doing something ‘normal’, we knew that anything organised at this time won’t be anything like normal.”
However, all may not be lost completely – for Lindfieldians to get their Village Day fix in 2021! The team are looking into the possibility of running an event which feels ‘a bit like Village Day’ in the first half of September.
“We’d love to be able to bring together our wonderful community, and help support traders, businesses and charities,” David continued. “With no Lindfield Arts Festival expected this year (normally held in September), there is a potential opportunity at that end of the year, when we hope things will be easier.”
Potential ideas for later in the year include a smaller number of trading stalls, over a larger area to enable social-distancing – if it is still in place at that time.
More information about the plans for any Lindfield Village Day event will be posted on here, in Lindfield Life magazine and also check out our Facebook page too.

We have thousands of local (and not so local) people come and visit our Village Day which makes it so special. Here's some of the recent messages we have received.
Thanks very much for having me at the weekend. Couldn't believe how big it was (glad I wasn't the one organising ) lol!! Please invite me back next year, so lovely to get out and trade in a different area. Picked up some lovely customers, so hopefully be a great contact in the future.
I wanted to write and send my thanks to the team for organising such a brilliant event on Saturday. It was great to see such a strong turnout from the community. I know just how much effort and hard work goes on behind the scenes in organising events such as village day, so a huge thank you for all that you did to make it happen.
Just to say how much my team enjoyed the event last Saturday. The organisation was excellent, the friendliness of the public was great and the help given by the group from All Saints church was fantastic and quite made our day. We were lucky to be pitched next to them. We hope to return just making sure that the dogs on duty do not mind loud bangs!
Just wanted to say a massive thank you and well done for today - we had a fab village day and realise how much work it must have take for you to run such a huge event - so thank you. We had a very successful day for the PTA and school so yay!
Another fantastic Lindfield Fun Day! Really good, its gets better & better every year! Well done to you & your amazing team!
Just to say thank you to you and all the village day team for all your hard work. You did another fantastic job. The weather was perfect as well! Looking forward to 2020!!
