LOVERS of autumn are being given a date for their diary for a festival that will mark the turning of the seasons.

The Lantern Fayre arts, music and literature festival will be held over October 3, 4 and 5 on The Level in Brighton.

It will feature cinema, literature, arts and crafts, storytelling, theatre, puppetry, a night market, children’s entertainment, circus skills workshops, a harvest feast and some of Brighton’s best live music.

On the Sunday organisers will be working with the Food Waste Collective to attempt to feed 1,000 people for free using food from Sussex farms and local businesses.
