During Saturday’s event, experience the spectacle of the Mermaid Parade with trophies in five categories. Come and see the lovely mermaids, mermen and merbabies - or better yet, don a tail and tiara, and join in the fun.

Away from the Jubilee Lawns, visit the Art Fair at the Bexhill Sailing Club for original Seaside and Nautical Art by local artists, while discovering what the friendly club itself has to offer.
