The Scurry of East Sussex

Good Friday 30th March 2018

At The Glebe, Etchingham Road, Burwash, East Sussex TN19 7BG


The annual Scurry of East Sussex is a fun filled day for everyone! The Scurry, a traditional hunt ride is held over approximately two miles of fierce  hedges and timber across well-drained seasoned turf.

Along with the spectacle of The Scurry, we have the high tension Gate Jumpers Challenge, how high will the gate go this year and who will clear it? What’s more, more than just spectating, we have an opportunity for all to get competitive themselves with the fun-filled hound racing. The Scurry is a great day out for all the family, refreshments and the bar will be open all day.
