Child Of Sussex Awards 2023

The Child of Sussex Awards, now in their 10th year, are designed to celebrate the achievements of the county's most precious asset: its children.

There are 11 awards that cover all aspects of a child’s life, and they will be presented at a very special awards in the heart of the Sussex countryside.

It will be an emotionally charged evening as we share the uplifting stories that reflect the truly amazing qualities of our children.

Our Hosts

In 2023 we are taking the Child Of Sussex Awards to the circus and the East Sussex School of Circus Arts in the middle of the Sussex countryside.

Our guests, sponsors and, of course, the winning children and their families will be spending the evening alongside circus performers, whilst they enjoy a plethora of activities such as crazy golf, laser tag and giant Jenga.

With a pop-up bar for the adults, and plenty for the kids including smoothies, ice cream van, candy floss and a popcorn machine, it promises to be an amazing evening for all!
