Our Christmas Cornucopia

Lewes late night shopping is this Thursday 6th December and we’ll be open until late to celebrate the start of Christmas. It’s a magical evening in Lewes; roads are closed, christmas decorations are revealed and the town twinkles with fairy lights.

This year there’s a light show outside the Law Courts at 6pm, bands are playing at Union Music, there’s a vintage fair in the All Saints Centre, live music outside the Nutty Wizard (practically on our doorstep!) and the ever brilliant Ska Toons will be headlining at 9pm on the main stage in the precinct.

Pop in and visit us for some festive cheer Buttercup style! We’ll be serving christmas crepes, churros con chocolat, mulled spiced apple juice, hot chocolates with lashings of cream and much more. Plus you’ll be one of the first to see our Christmas Cornucopia – an eclectic and festive pop-up shop created by Lewes artists and makers at The Buttercup Cafe. We have handcrafted delights and beautiful jewellery for sale this month in our downstairs dining room. Do pop in to find some amazing presents.

The Buttercup Christmas Cornucopia

You can probably hear us singing at the other end of town, “Tis the season to be jolly, Fa la la la la, la la la la. Don we now our gay apparel, Fa la la, la la la, la la la.” What genius lyrics. We’re feeling festive down here at The Buttercup and we’ll be revealing our Christmas Cornucopia to all on Thursday evening.

Handmade cloth baubles

It’s the special Lewes late night Christmas shopping event from 5.30pm till 8.30pm. So wrap up warm and as it gets dark come down to the magical Buttercup yard. We’ll be festooned in fairy lights, there’ll be music, outdoor heaters, blankets and hot water bottles.

It’s an evening of cioccolato treats;  we’ll be serving churros con chocolat, a decadent chocolate fondue, delicious hot chocolate and yummy Nutella pancakes. Oh, and I’m sure we’ll squeeze in a couple of choccie buttons too for the Buttercup babies. There’ll also be a fresh pot of seasonal winter soup on the go in the kitchen.
