NFOL 2017

NATIONAL FEAST OF LANTERNS 2017 you may wish to consider placing the 2017 NFOL in your diary now. The venue is the All England Jumping course at Hickstead BN6 9HS on the A23 a few miles north of Brighton.The dates are from the 24th until the 28th August 2016. (August Bank Holiday).  Places are limited therefore early booking is recommended.

The theme for the event is “A Day at the Races”.  There is plenty of scope for adults and children to get involved in the Mardi Gras parade etc.  However, we want people to think outside the box and consider races other than the norms of cars, horses, bikes etc.  Why not consider things like School sports such as egg and spoon or local traditions for instance cheese rolling etc.  There is a wealth of opportunity for you.

The South Eastern Region encompasses Kent which is known as the garden of England, notwithstanding that the region also has a lot of history and attractions and is an ideal location to enjoy a holiday with something of interest for everyone.  It is a coastal area with many well-known seaside towns, we have famous cathedrals, castles, steam railways, working museums, gardens, and the free Eastbourne Air Show takes place the weekend before the NFOL plus of course close proximity to London with all it has to offer.

The South Eastern Region DA’s and sections have arranged Temporary Holiday Sites throughout the Region to allow you to explore and enjoy the region before completing your holiday at the NFOL.

The South Eastern Region, look forward to welcoming you at NFOL 2017 and also at one or more of their Temporary Holiday sites next year.
