23rd November 2023
Smoke Sauna Sisterhood film screening
Having been blown away by seeing Smoke Sauna Sisterhood at Depot recently, we got in touch with the distributors and are delighted to be bringing the film to Newhaven for a special screening at the Hillcrest.
A bit like The Nettle Dress earlier this year, this film is an extraordinarily honest story of life, loss, comfort and belonging. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did.
Join us on Thursday 23rd November. Doors open at 6.30pm for hot drinks, and the film starts at 7pm. Dress cosy.

Soup & Social Creative Newhaven Christmas Crackerthon
Okay, so we just made that title up right now, but join us for the last Soup & Social of 2023. We'll be back in cahoots with Creative Newhaven, taking a look back over the year that was, and having a bit of a shindig with delicious food and drink. Plus we'll be getting our Christmas craft on as we make the crackers and decorations for our Christmas day (YES - CHRISTMAS DAY!) event.
You know the drill: free to attend, open to all, you're invited!
Festive fun all round from 6pm at the Hillcrest Centre.

Join is for a Very Hospitable Christmas
Start a new tradition with us this Christmas day and join us for a shared community meal on the 25th of December. As ever, it's free to attend and the invitation is open to all, but this time places are limited to 70 people to enable us to deliver a traditional sit down dinner with all the trimmings. (Of course, veggie/vegan options are available too!)
We will gather at the Hillcrest at 1pm for a traditional Christmas lunch served at the table.
We have been fortunate to receive funding for this event from the Lewes District Food Partnership, and The House Project, and the Hillcrest Community Centre have allowed us to use the centre free of charge. If you or your business would like to sponsor this event - with funds, ingredients or equipment - please do contact us at
We'd love to hear from you.
