With a diverse range of business members – from independent shops, garden designers and architects to solicitors and accountants (and everything in between) – everyone benefits from membership of Lewes Chamber of Commerce.



Chamber Events/Meetings
At this time we will not be arranging, holding or attending any non-essential meetings/events. We plan to relaunch the breakfasts and lunches in 2021 when permitted and people are more willing to attend events again. This is to protect ourselves, our colleagues and the general public. In the meantime, thank you, and we hope we will see you again soon. (Updated 04/12/21).


The Government has made available a full range of business support measures during this time. For all the latest up-to-date grants, funds and  guidance on coronavirus support for businesses, please visit the Lewes District Council website.
