Performing Arts students from Brighton Academy will create an atmosphere of mystery and magic as guests arrive for the first Sussex Wildlife Trust Charity Ball on 17 September. A group of talented students in the guise of woodland themed magical characters will guide guests towards a luxury marquee set in the grounds of the beautiful Folkington Manor Private Estate in the heart of the South Downs between Lewes and Eastbourne.
