Sussex Day

Celebrate our beautiful county on 16 June each year and find inspiring ideas.

Sussex Day on 16 June has become a popular way for residents to celebrate its rich heritage and everything that is good about the county.

The date was chosen because it is St Richard's Day, which marks the life of St Richard, Bishop of Chichester from 1245 until his death in 1253.

To get you started watch our Spirit of Sussex Day video, which shows you why we celebrate Sussex Day each year.
