Cuckfield Music Festival, a charity run event, is joining forces to bring an evening of music and fashion to be hosted by BBC presenter Katie Derham.

Katie, who lives in Horsted Keynes, is one of the most recognisable voices on BBC Radio 3 as the award-winning presenter of its flagship programme In Tune.

She won Strictly Come Dancing's Christmas special in 2017.

The event will feature music and fashion by young people from the surrounding area and is co-run by JoJo Boutique, a clothes shop in Haywards Heath.

It will be held on Saturday, April 20, in Holy Trinity Church, in Church Street, Cuckfield, with a reception and live music from 6pm and with the first models taking to the runway at 6.30pm.

The evening will feature the latest spring fashions and a programme of music by students from local schools and colleges.

This will be the first event staged by Cuckfield Music Festival since it became a registered charity and is part of its objective to provide opportunities for musicians from Sussex to get involved with and perform music of all genres.
