Events and things of interest in the local area!

As I’m sure you well know, Mid Sussex is a vibrant area with loads to do and many different events and services on offer.

Lots of services and things to do in Hurstpierpoint, Haywards Heath, Hassocks, Ditchling, Brighton etc. are all on offer, here are a few things we think you should know about

Calico love being involved with local businesses and museums, especially Ditching Museum who are brilliant to work with.

Ditchling museum is running many events in the up and coming year. One of these events is The INTEROBANG Exhibition, a letterpress exhibition, which is curated by Ditchling Museum for The Village of Type. It’s an open submission event – visit their website for details – get your letterpress printing professionally exhibited!

Why not get down to one of The Village of Type’s activities, exhibitions or workshops celebrating 100 years of Edward Johnston’s typeface he designed for the London Underground – a Calico favourite.

See their website for details – it going to be fantastic.

Just down the road from Ditchling Museum is Pruden and Smith, a gold and silver smith and jewellers, founded in 1988.

With strong ties to Eric Gill and the Guild of St. Joseph and Dominic, Pruden and Smith invite you to look around their new gallery and refurbished workshop. Also you can check out the items in the January sales – just in time for Valentines Day!

Maybe the post Christmas and New Year blues haven’t yet completely subsided, and you need a bit of pampering or attention. Sussex Osteopath in Hurstpierpoint can ‘bring you balance and comfort to you life’ which, I’m sure you’ll agree, sounds invaluable. The Heeler Centre in Hassocks offers a comprehensive chiropractic, osteopathy and physiotherapy clinic – why not give a loved one some Heeler Centre vouchers for an early birthday present or valentines gift?

Maybe you’ve just neglected yourself over the Christmas period, how about taking up the January ‘Treat your Hands’ offer at Columbines on the High Street in Hurstpierpoint.

Brightworld, located in Hurstpierpoint, have been helping over seas students find the right education establishment since 2000.

And just one more thing… don’t forget to get your entries in for the Brighton marathon on 17 April – run for charity and raise some money for a good cause.
