The stage will be made up from the comedy and tragedy masks which each of the 15 schools involved in the Moving On Parade will have carried through the town earlier in the day. These will be lit, creating an amazing atmosphere to enjoy the performances and stories as the sun goes down on a spectacular day.

Everyone is invited to come along with a picnic blanket and grab a drink from the bar.

Twilight Tales is on Friday July 7 in The Paddock, Lewes from 7:00-10:00pm. This is a free event.
