AR 2020 – East Sussex, 15-17 May 2020
Our 2020 Annual Reunion will be organised by the Kent & Sussex Region (KSX) and will be held at the East Sussex National Hotel in Little Horsted.

The East Sussex National is a purpose-built hotel and golf club situated in a country setting a few miles north-east of Lewes, the historic county town of East Sussex. The meeting room and all of the bedrooms, some with balconies, look out over the two international level golf courses. There is also a health club and spa with a lovely 20m pool, as well as ample free parking.
For the Saturday excursions we will be organizing:
- A guided walking tour of Lewes, with its many landmarks and Tom Paine connections;
- A guided tour of the Brighton Pavilion, a sumptuous former royal residence and later seaside pleasure palace for the Prince Regent, who became King George IV; and
- A guided visit to Wakehurst, Kew’s botanic garden in Sussex and home to the Millenium Seed Bank.
There may also be a walk on the Sunday afternoon, and an informal golf tournament, if there is sufficient interest.
If you are able to extend your stay, there are other attractions in the area, such as Standen House, an Arts and Crafts family home with Morris & Co. interiors and a recently restored 12-acre hillside garden with extensive countryside views, Sheffield Park and the Bluebell Railway, and Michelham Priory, which are all well worth a visit.
