Jay Wootten, Chairman of the Bexhill Carnival Committee said: “We are delighted to be back, and have been working since last year to try and find the financial support to run carnival week.

“We are grateful to our new headline sponsor and other co-sponsors who have supported us again to enable the week to go ahead. We are hoping loads of people will enter the procession this year, we have made the theme nice and easy! We also know it is the 1250th anniversary of the Bexhill Charter granted by King Offa in 772AD – some food for thought there!”
