It is bigger and better than ever. The 9th Lindfield Arts Festival showcases both new and upcoming local performing and fine artists whilst encouraging the community to celebrate the unique spirit of mid Sussex’s culture. There will be fresh food stalls and plenty of seating in the High Street to watch, listen and meet whilst enjoying performances by local dance and drama students as well as bands all day long.
Amongst the full programme of events, there will be an amazing art trail including open studios and a display in the Primary Academy, a craft show, an extraordinary cake display being filmed by Channel 4 for their Extreme Cake Makers programme, live art on cellograff in the High Street, some meaningful drama productions addressing memory and culinary delights respectively as well as a unique display of magnificent structures on the Common for families to explore.
The vibrant pink Literary Tent hosts a programme for young and old; there will be a Strictly Lindfield Tea Dance and two ‘must go to’ performances at the King Edward Hall on Friday and Saturday night. Rockaoke is a band not be missed, giving you the chance to sing and dance along, and be the rock star you always dreamed of; whilst FoxiVox! will lift your spirits as you relax and enjoy their jazz interpretations.
If creative art, photography, violin mysteries, circus skills, spray painting, opera singing, cyanotype printing and drama are your interests, then there are workshops for you to join. Places may be limited so advance booking is recommended.
