can anyone help? we are a group of lovely 30 somethings that are organising our gourgeous friends hen night, and we need a field, for 1 night, to make a little noise ( really, not much..), have a bbq, dance til dawn and generally go a bit mental. all conventional campsites go into shock at the mere mention of hens and we don't want upsert anyone. we just want a night with girlfriends having a hoot. we will undoubtedly clear up after ourselves and either pay for the rent of the field or donate an amount to charity. if anyone has any ideas we would love to hear from you. firstname.lastname@example.org thanks for reading x

Cliffe Bonfire own a field just outside Lewes on the road to Uckfield they may be willing to let you use it for a few quid. Or there's Boathouse farm near Isfield that does rough camping

The guy you need to ring is Crispin Tebbut of Boathouse Farm, Isfield. The best field is the one by the side of the Ouse. It's not far from Barcombe's Anchor Inn so the landlord might even let you use the loos if you ask nicely. You will be expected to clean up well though.

Cliffe bonfire society might lend you their spare firesite up by Earwig Corner.

If you want to try the DIY route, the place for raves is the chalkpits above Offham. Early morning dog walkers sometimes come across the remains of a party at the top. Make as much noise as you like and it just bothers the seagulls. But this is probably more of a proposition for twenty somethings who don't do responsible things like get married.

don't bother with the Cliffe site it's nearly always flooded when it rains.
Access is not easy either.

The Paddock may be an option, it is in the centre of Lewes with easy entrance from Paddock Road by car. Many events are held here 'Proms in the Paddock', Bonfire events etc and last year a Wedding reception with live band. Not sure who you would contact but the caretakers live on site I think in the little lodge. Hope this helps.

I don't think the paddock is a good idea.. too central for noisy hens! I would just call the local farmers and see if you can borrow a field. Yellow pages has them listed. On a practical note loo's might be a problem.. have you tried Spring barn farm who offer 'official' camping (but at a price!)

Boathouse will suit you best. You might want to rent a porta loo.
