Flooding - Prepare Act Survive


Since the damaging floods hit Lewes in 2000 a lot of work has been done to increase flood defences on the River Ouse.


The Environment Agency has invested over £28 million in flood defence schemes along the Ouse to better protect around 1800 homes and 700 businesses.


Please come and visit us at the Environment Agency's stand during this year's festival to find out more about what we’ve done and plans for future flood alleviation – and how you can be better prepared should floods strike.


What you can do to be better prepared for flooding?


There are a number of things you can do to prepare for flooding.

To check your flood risk, sign up for flood warnings and make a flood plan – please visit or call Floodline on 0345 988 1188.



Come and see us during the Lewes Light festival between 6pm and 9:30pm upstairs at the Linklater Pavilion.
