Where do you meet people in Lewes? Just moved here. Like the Lamb but a bit young and loud. I am 40, female and arty!

depends what type your after. For daily drinking smokers that think they are full of knowledge rather than the losers they are, try the Crown, Volly or Gardeners. For some reasonable conversation, try the Black Horse or JHT. For arty farty junk, the Lewes Arms is the place. You are too old for the Lansdown and the Royal Joke. Maybe the Snowdrop would suit you if you don't mind the walk. Swerve the Tally Ho. Proper Council oicks, Shameless style boozer.

Creative professionals and amateurs are often seen in Laporte's and The Buttercup Café during the day: and there's a great variety of live music (folk-based or rock) on at The Lamb. But the best thing to do is get involved with something e.g. Artwave or Chalk Gallery. Go to openings and talks, maybe at The Hop Gallery or elsewhere. Or, if music is your thing, see if Starfish need a hand (though I'm not sure if their move of home has begun yet). Classical music, you'll find through the musicians at St Michael's, St Anne's, the East Sussex Bach Choir,... maybe the Lewes Chamber Music Festival wants a hand? Folk music goes on above the Elephant and Castle. But the landlords of The Lamb and of the Elephant and Castle (to name only two) are proper hosts, and know plenty of ways to introduce newcomers. The sofa in the snug of The Lamb is comfy. And the Tourist Information Centre have lists of many things. See also windows of houses in Lansdown Place and Friars Walk, and also the Bow Windows Bookshop for many posters.

Its best to just avoid pubs. They're full of drunk tedious letches, unless thats what you are after.
Get yourself a few cats, stay in and clasp a mug of hot tea instead and watch repeats of "Come Dine with Me". Socialising is overrated.

If you're willing to travel a short distance along the Uckfield Road and turn left just past Goldcliffe Garden Centre you can try the Cock Inn

The Lansdown is a good choice for meeting people, they have a nice eclectic mix of clientale and friendly staff. If it's art your after I would check out The Open House by London Rd Station too, they hold regular exhibitions upstairs, nice Sunday Roast too. X

I imagine a few horny men from this forum will now be splashing on their aftershave and heading down to the Landsdowne Pub in the hunt for a single 40 year old lady. Always opportunists in this world.

The Lansdown is great for meeting people, let the locals know you are new to town and they always invite you in to get to know everyone. Can be a bit young on Friday nights but never a dull moment!

I'm also looking for a bit of socialising - I'm about the same age and also a creative female. If you can work out how to PM (I can't!) I'll be up for trying something with you.

Ann - sadly Zu studios has just closed - that wound have been a good place to meet new people. There are loads of clubs/ groups advertised in the Lewes news. Also check out the library - they will have details of community events etc. Also, you could try joining a bonfire society and getting involved with fundraising etc. The Con club has lots of gigs and the Lamb has a great atmosphere when it has gigs. I'd try also some of the many classes on offer. You can also look at the town council website and what's happening at the All Saints centre.There is a huge amount going on in Lewes.!
