This year’s Patina Moving On theme is “Wild in the Woods!”, exploring the
fascinating life of trees, woodland species and childhood tales set in the woods.

We want to do everything we can to make this year’s celebrations happen for the children. We are also of course very committed to keeping everyone safe. As Covid 19 legislation still requires school audiences to be in groups of no more than 30, parading on the High Street is extremely difficult. We have taken the hard decision to hold the event in a quieter area of town and reduce risks by limiting the audience to family members and carers.

We are in touch with families via schools to communicate timings and arrangements.


With a heavy heart we would ask you not to watch the parade unless you are family, so that we can manage audience numbers in compliance with the law and make the event possible for the children. We will film and share the event for all to watch and enjoy. Thank you!

Patina would like to express huge thanks to everyone who has helped keep the Moving On tradition going for our children this year including the Enjoolata Foundation, Lewes Town
Council, The Sussex Community Foundation, Tapestry Online, Sussex Wildlife Trust, Lewes Pound, Lewes FC, Emma Carlow, Michael Bell Brands, Press2Talk, individual donors and
fundraisers and all our wonderful schools, stewards, artists and volunteers.
