For those who are not aware, Mumford and Sons will be performing (amongst other bands) in Lewes. Takes place during summer. Perhaps another "claim to fame" besides bonfire night. personally looking forward to it. Opinions?

This is interesting, could you give a little more detail as to who Mum Ford and her sons are and when and where they will be playing ? When are the tickets available and is this something I could buy on the website or even a local music shop ?
@Townie. I do hope your missing Lord turns up soon. Where did you last have him ?

Another Lewes claim to fame? Or claim to ephemeral celebrity? How about:
Lewes Priory
Battle of Lewes
John Evelyn
Tom Paine
George Baxter (inventor of a viable colour printing system)
And many more

I must admit that when I heard someone say that Mumford and Sons were coming to Lewes I thought ''That's all we need, another bloody estate agents''.

The battle of Lewes was the scene of the first recorded heavy cavalry charge with lances in history. The victory of Simon De Montfort was an important step towards the development of democracy and ending the feudal reign of British monarchy.

And now we have a folk band playing a rather expensive gig in town.

This is indeed the claim to fame Lewes has always needed alongside Bonfire Night.

Don't be too hard on yourself dear Lady, I am sure you will soon warm up.
Further to Chronicles list is Mark Williams. Has lived in Lewes longer than Tom Paine and is certainly more recognisable. Arguably he has also had a greater impact on democracy as, similarly to Norman Wisdom, he is absolutely massive in both Koreas.

I think M&S (not the shop) are ideal for Lewes... surprised VivaLewes haven't had 'em for their Christmas party entertainment already... maybe they will now?... They remind me of an earnest group of local teens doing their right-on thang in the precinct on a Sat morning... but who have amazingly sold millions of records - so whadda I know eh?
Earnest folk... NICE.

Your condescending attitude can't hide the glaring absence of an answer to any of the points I have made, raving or not. Another... more
