Alison Field from Lewes Octoberfeast said: “There’s still time to get your event in our full colour programme so do get in touch as soon as possible if you’d like to take part this year.

“If you’re a keen cook and enjoy entertaining why not host a pop up supper this year?

“It can be as formal or casual as you like. Share the cooking with a friend! Past suppers have always been great fun - and you can make a bit of money for you or for charity.”
