fun on the farm
Macs Farm Events
Our farm is completely unique. As well as being a working farm we also love opening our gates and holding a range of family friendly events.
These have included Barn Dances, Sausage and Cider Nights, Film Nights, Foraging, Nature Walks, Foodie Events and our wonderful family festival, Wild Meadows.
We are always dreaming up of different ways to welcome you to our farm and are so excited to holding our first ever Gin and Groove night in May. We will also be opening up on most Saturdays during our camping season for the most delicious street food and live music, so that you can join us for a chilled evening in our fields.
Please keep an eye on our website and social media to keep up to date with all the goings on. Check out this years events below and click away to find out all the details and make a booking.

Ditchling Art Trail
Art On The Farm
This year, we will be taking part in the wonderful Art in Ditchling Trail, part of Brighton’s Artists Open Houses. Visitors can purchase and draw on their own canvases. We will have live music, a local street diner and a licenced bar.
Join us for an unforgettable cinema experience on our family run farm. With on-screen lyrics so that everybody can join in, the magical story of PT Barnum will ‘come alive’ inside our wonderful Old Chook Shed.
Pancake Day at The Macs
To us, pancake day is totally underrated. That is why this year, we are taking the celebrations to another level and would love for you to pull on your favourite pair of wellies and join on Saturday 2nd March!
Nature and Wildlife
Follow your guides through various organic habitats and learn how to identify edible wild plants that grow freely around us. Then, join us at our banquet table in the woods for our wild picnic next to an open fire, where we will sample some of the best foraged foods from the local area!
Festive Film and Feast: Elf and Love Actually
On Saturday 8th December we will be opening up our Old Chook Shed doors for a very special festive event. We will have not one, but two classic Christmas flicks for you to choose from; Elf and Love Actually.
