Not heard anything yet, but will keep my ears and eyes open.

We tend to have late night shopping and Christmas festivals that time of year.

In case they decide to use the same formula, it was Saturday 8 December last year. We went and it was excellent.

We found some lanolin from Romney Marsh wools on sale (which has been a big hit here at AM Towers). It's something I'd never seen for sale before or indeed since.

Any suggestions on where to stay as im guessing Rye will be very busy and possibly booked up . Somewhere that's easy to get train or bus from wouldn't want to drive into rye .

Just book as soon as you hear, and I'm sure you'll be fine. It's a big event for Rye but it's not like the Olympics !

You don't mention budget - if it's not an issue stay at The Mermaid or Jeakes House. We stay here which is cheap, central and has parking and availability for that weekend : …eviivo.com/MyWebsite/details.aspx…

So did you have a good time?

I was in France for the day, so I didn't go.

Rye itself was great lovely shops and plenty of places to stop for coffee had afternoon tea in Fletcher's which was excellent. However the Christmas market / stalls was cancelled as something else was happening in Hastings and Father Christmas arriving by boat was pretty poor .We stayed in Strand House which just perfect so all in all despite being let down with the Christmas festivities we had an enjoyable weekend .
