The Ripple says "It all started this year as a coming together of musical talent in Lewes on the first Bank Holiday weekend in May, with 5 of the 8 events being hosted by the Con Club. It was a real success - all the events were well attended and a decent amount of money was raised for local charities. It's encouraged us to embark on a series of pop-up events through the winter that will culminate in ‘A Bigger Ripple’ next May VE Day Bank Holiday."
