All the fun of the fair

WIth rock ‘n’ roll dodgems, thrilling rides, vintage classics, inflatables and much more, Stevens Funfair has a friendly, family atmosphere with live performers and entertainment and runs for over two weeks this year as part of the Lions festival.


Modern wheels and classic steals

If you’re a classic car or scooter enthusiast, you’re in luck. Steyne Gardens is gearing up to be covered in vintage vehicles on 27-28 July from 10am-5pm, with owners on hand to chat about their classics.


On the buses

Take an unforgettable trip and board one of the restored buses along the prom on Sunday 28 July. Whether you pick a classic Routemaster or the familiar green and yellow livery of the vintage Southdown Buses, there’ll be a fleet of favourites from 90 years ago to present day. Free services will run all day from 10am-5pm, with stops including Sea Lane Café, West Worthing and Worthing train stations, the fantastic Henty Arms beer festival and a shuttle service to the Dome.


To market, to market

Over the last two Sundays in July, the Lions charity market returns bigger and better than ever. Stalls are offered for free to everyone, from mainstream charities to local good causes.

In addition, a field of gazebos will pop up in Steyne Gardens from 26-28 July for the commercial market, clustered with food, craft and other artisan and independent sellers.

There’s still space along the prom, so if you would like a FREE charity or good cause stall at this year’s charity market, download an application form from or contact Andy on 07919 023618.


Going out with a bang!
