We can all do with a bit of comedy and laughter now and then to remind us what’s important in life. Join us at The George in Rye on Friday 24th September or Friday 19th November, and you can sit back and be entertained by some of the finest stand-up comedians in the land in our Lonestar Comedy Club package. Come down to East Sussex Friday afternoon, have a wander around Rye’s antiques shops, relax in your room before a slap-up dinner in our restaurant. Then all you need do is take your seats in the Ballroom for the comedy revue show, where our lineup of estimable comics will endeavour to make you cry with laughter. Table drinks service is of course all a part of the evenings, true cabaret club style. The comedy package starts at £107.50 per person with all included, this is no practical joke! Take a look at the info and book here.
One of our favourite places to go is the seafront at Hastings, which has a beautiful fishing fleet and all the original wooden huts selling seafood and lunch straight off the boats. We’re very excited about the Hastings Seafood and Wine Festival on 18th and 19th September, and can’t wait to amble along all the tents, stands and cooking demos to gorge ourselves on some of the best fish in the UK. We’re especially looking forward to the LindyHop entertainment on Sunday afternoon, while plenty of piratical adventures and Punch and Judy Shows should be fun for the children (and adults). Our rooms are going fast for that weekend, so book online soon if you fancy cockles and mussels alive, alive-O!

A heads up to say that all of the staff are going to be swimming down the River Rother on Friday 3rd September to raise money for The Oliver Curd Trust. We’ll be swimming from Bodiam Castle to Scots Float, a total of 11 miles, taking turns to go down the entire navigatable length of the river, battling weeds, slugs and fisherman until it is conquered! The Oliver Curd Trust provides holiday accommodation for families affected by childhood cancer, and was set up by Oliver’s parents in his memory; Oliver lived locally and lost his battle with cancer at the age of 9. If you’d like to support the charity swim, please head to our Just Giving page, and dig deep. You can also cheer on the team on the 3rd – are we being brave, or foolish?!

Finally, the wonderful Rye Arts Festival returns to town from 11th-23rd September. In venues dotted all around town, look out for literary events, film screenings and music performances. We’re looking forward to hearing sailor Ellen MacArthur talk about her solo circumnavigation of the globe, historian Dan Cruickshank on the Secret History of Georgian London, and Tom Bingham, Lord Chief Justice of England and Wales on what the idea of the law actually means. Here at The George in Rye, we’re hosting our favourite Turpin-Hubbard Duo (pictured) for some mellow Sunday afternoon blues on Sunday 19th September. Take a look at the full programme on the festival website.

Best Wishes
Alex and Katie Clarke
