OVINGDEAN GREEN FESTIVAL – 27 JUNE 2020: Regrettably we have had to cancel this years festival because of the uncertainty caused by Covid -19.We are currently deciding the date for the 2021 festival !! Watch for more details

A very warm welcome to the Ovingdean Village community website. If you’re a resident, you’ll find news and information about the many societies and groups in the village, as well as details of upcoming events and a forum for discussing local issues. For visitors to the area, there’s a wealth of information on things to see and do and a gallery of images submitted by local people to give you a flavour of just what it’s like to live in our beautiful semi-rural village nestling between the South Downs National Park and the English Channel. I do hope you find the website useful – I look forward to receiving your contributions and suggestions of how the site might develop and serve the community.
