Do you remember the weekend of festival fun in Bexhill’s Egerton Park ten years ago?

Bexhill’s fifth Edgyfest proved to be an event worthy of the anniversary ten years ago - helped in no small measure by exceptionally warm weather - and drew hundreds of people to the town’s Egerton Park, after which it takes its name.

The event took place on the first weekend of June 2012. The Friday saw 300 people, including leading members of both Bexhill and Hastings’ communities, attending the evening launch of Bexhill’s own street pastors.

The following day brought a host of activities, not least of which was a 10-team It’s A Knockout style event and a tug-o’-war - convincingly won by Flour Power, a group of ladies who trounced all opposition.

Zumba dancing to Latin-American rhythms was also popular with crowds who enjoyed a range of stalls and sideshows, crafts, puppet shows and for youngsters, a bouncy castle.
