Glimpses of the Ouse

6pm, Wed 27th March
Council Chamber, Lewes Town Hall
FREE ticketed

The Mayor of Lewes, Matthew Bird, is hosting a special event to celebrate the heritage and rich history of the River Ouse with an exciting talks programme.

Communities along the Ouse owe their existence to the river and in addition to salt, paper, flour and water mills there has always been a massive amount of industry and agriculture along its banks. Ships were built and launched in Lewes!

As well as talks on Industry and Transport, Bridges, The Cockshut and the Priory and Rights of Rivers there will be an exhibition of past images and pictures of the Ouse. The event encourages anyone with paintings of the Ouse, who’d like to see them exhibited, to get in touch with the Town Hall by contacting info@lewes-tc.gov.uk
