The Lewes Electric Car Show

Saturday 11am to 2 pm, April 21st 2018, Harvey’s Brewery rear yard. FREE

What are electric cars really like to drive? Is it easy to charge them? How long do the batteries last? Are they very expensive?


If you have questions like these or are just curious, come along to see a variety of electric cars and meet their owners. There will be no salespeople, just ordinary drivers who have taken the plunge.

There will also be some short talks about electric vehicles at the Phoenix Centre nearby where you can get further information and ask questions.

We hope to have cars such as the Tesla, the Nissan Leaf, the latest BMW and a variety of others yet to be confirmed.

A Transition Town Lewes and Ovesco event.

How much is enough? Making work pay

Tuesday 1st May 2.30pm, Lewes Town Hall Council Chamber


What do we define as an acceptable standard of living? How can we balance the responsibilities of employers and taxpayers for helping to provide a liveable income for the lowest paid?

Professor Donald Hirsch will discuss his research on these questions which concern us all in Lewes.

Professor Hirsch is Director of the Centre for Research in Social Policy at Loughborough University, whose research forms the basis for the real Living Wage adopted by the Living Wage Foundation. In previous roles he was a journalist, an international policy consultant and Poverty Advisor to the Joseph Rowntree Foundation.

Please arrive early – the chamber holds 70 and may fill up. We can keep a limited number of seats if you let us know in advance. Contact leweslivingwage@gmail.com
