Step into Christmas with our packed events calendar guaranteed to bring the festive cheer.
It's all go as we prepare for Christmas at the Hop Sun Tap. The team have been busy dreaming up a range of activities and events to make the most of the festive season and we would love to see you come down to share the fun.
From our regular quiz and run club, both with extra festive sparkles, we are also looking to do a festive bake off, christmas card sale, best dressed dog show plus so much more. Check out our calendar of events and keep an eye on our socials for all the details.
As a community focused business we feel strongly that Christmas is a time to give something back to the community so we are proud to support our charity partner, Haywards Heath Food Bank. We believe that no-one should go hungry and we support the vision for a UK without the need for food banks. Unfortunately, we are not there yet so this year, we are partnering with Haywards Heath Foodbank, part of the Trussell Trust network
Throughout December there will be a drop off point within the taproom for food donations. If you are able to help, you can check on what is urgently required here. Thankyou!
