Community & Events

The harbour, Newhaven with fishing boats

Outdoor community activities & events

The Sidings will have a community courtyard to host events and activities for the Town. These will work in conjunction with the bistro and other users of the site and become a honeypot of outdoor community activity. 

We are open for arts and crafts events through the season.

Local fun events, music, community and heritage events.


As The Sidings is centrally located, it is on a main cycle route, opposite the bus interchange and near to the railway station and ferry, it will be easy to get to without using the car.   And being part of the port it will be actively engaging with visitors from Europe and its ‘sister’ ferry town Dieppe. 

The events will be managed by the Newhaven Enterprise Zone. Please use the contact form on the right-hand side to request further information.

    The first phase of the site is the impressive waterside bistro, supported by the community courtyard, and community spaces ready to promote the river, cycling and walking. Later phases will include additional container space to support more social enterprises.
