Art Event: Alfriston Labyrinth Festival ** 11-18 Jun 2016 ** Alfriston


The focus of the whole event is a labyrinth ‘cut’ into the grass between St Andrew’s Church and the River Cuckmere.

We extend a warm welcome to everyone to come along on any of the days, walk the labyrinth if you wish, and attend the events on offer.

Following the formal opening at 11.00am on 11th June, the labyrinth will be available for walking through the whole week, and beyond. Additionally, during the festival week there will be art displays, labyrinth related graphics and continuous videos (with music) related to the theme of “Life Journey – the Beauty is in the Walking”, in St Andrew’s church.
