If PT Barnum was alive today, he’d love what we’re planning! We’re ‘pitching our tent’ and putting up our cinema beside the walls of historic Camber Castle, surrounded completely by fields and nearby Winchelsea Beach. We really are putting on a SHOW! 

The night will help raise funds for the Nature Reserve Discover Centre at Rye Harbour. The Nature Reserve is one of the largest and most important wildlife sites in England, set in an exceptional coastal and wetland landscape and home to 4,500 varieties of plants and animals including 300 considered nationally rare or endangered.

Working in partnership with Sussex Wildlife Trust and Friends Rye Harbour Nature Reserve, plans and a public fundraising campaign are well underway to raise the remaining one-third of the funds required.

Please help raise a further £500,000 in order to replace the old Lime Kiln Cottage with a new purpose-built centre.
