Lightning Fibre hosts Pop Up Art Exhibition to celebrate sponsorship of Hailsham Festival 2022

Lightning Fibre is proud to sponsor the Hailsham Festival and Hailsham Artists Network Art & Discovery Trail. The Festival ran from 3rd – 18th September 2022. To help promote the event outside of Hailsham, Lightning Fibre hosted an intimate drinks reception and ‘pop up art exhibition’ in Eastbourne at our new offices, on Moy Avenue (we have out-grown our old HQ in Polegate as we push towards 200 direct employees – 95% of whom are locally-based here in East Sussex!).

Both Town Mayors attended; The Worshipful the Mayor of Eastbourne, Cllr Pat Rodohan and The Worshipful the Mayor of Hailsham, Cllr Paul Holbrook, and the event raised money for local charity, Wayfinder Woman Trust.

"An expanding Eastbourne company that, I am delighted to say, likes to give back....some extremely good art here tonight; I hope that the artists are successful and will have many more of these events in the future." Cllr Pat Rodohan, The Worshipful the Mayor of Eastbourne.
