There will also be six great food trucks on-site including award-winning food trucks The Cow & The Curd, Oink & Moo BBQ, Empanada Guy, Waffle de Lys, The Outslider and Pizza Vita.

Big Brew Sussex will also feature a Mechanical Bull, which is certain to add to the festive atmosphere.

Big Brew Sussex Festival is a benefit to support the effort to restore the historic Newton Fire Museum, which due to needed repairs is in danger of closing its doors forever. For more information visit
