About Sussex

An area rich in music, East and West Sussex offer a fascinating choice of landscapes in which to walk, each full of associations with English history to add interest along the way. The coast, now with a string of holiday resorts along its length, has seen many an attempted invasion, and many castles both Roman, medieval and Norman, bear witness to its defence. Behind the coast lie the South Downs, a chalk Ridgeway of sweeping grassy slopes, home to Southdown sheep and the location of an ancient route, The south Downs Way, walked by stone age man.

This natural barrier is cut by several lovely river valleys such as the Arun, Ouse and Cuckmere. On the north facing side of the South Downs a steep escarpment drops into the Vale of Sussex. Beyond, northwards lies The Weald, once an impenetrable forest growing on the Wealden clay, now an affluent countryside filled with glorious woods, pretty villages, orchards and hop farms with their characteristic conical oast-houses.

Sussex, with its miles of coastline and inland downs, has a wide choice of wedding venues. Whether you are considering live music for a wedding, party, anniversary or corporate event, there is bound to be a suitable music group amongst our large selection of bands and ensembles.

A party bands is a favourite for the evening, as are function bands or covers bands . If this isn't your style, then a jazz duo or Scottish ceilidh band, and for the afternoon, perhaps string quartet or harpist:
