It is with an extremely heavy heart that we have to announce that Rye Festival of The Sea will not be taking place this year.

As a committee, we have communicated as much as possible as soon as the stay at home guidelines were released, and we were extremely hopeful that the 2020 festival could go ahead. However, with the ongoing guidelines and the uncertainty of the pandemic timeline, we regret that we cannot go ahead this year.

We plan to come back bigger and better in 2021 with our maritime traditions and community spirit!

We’d like to thank everyone for their support in spreading our festival news over the last few months and will continue to whet your whistles with some maritime memories as often as possible, as well as posting any important news regarding the future festival and celebrations.

Stay safe!
