About the production

A kaleidoscopic and unique insight into Sussex at the turn of the century...

Follow Sussex's greatest writer, Hilaire Belloc's adventures as he takes a spur of the moment journey on foot across the breadth of Edwardian Sussex with three extraordinary companions at the mystical time of Halloween.

On their four day odyssey, they travel 92 miles and drink 300 pints of beer! They quarrel, laugh and sing as they recount the legends of the Downs, speak of their first loves and meet some remarkable characters along the way!

Featuring five actors and live music.

"A fascinating piece of entertainment... a hymn of praise to Sussex and its countryside." ★★★★ - The Argus, Brighton
