We’re thrilled that we now have Broomdasher booked for this year’s festival.
This is the unique sound of 16 harmonious voices whose passion, exuberance and harmonies enthrall and engage all who hear them.
These folk enthusiasts and singers are spreading music and happiness!
They’ll be performing on Saturday 23rd September at a number of different venues. Please do check back for further details.
We’re excited to reveal we’ve been awarded a four figure sum from Awards For All/The National Lottery.
This funding enables us to collaborate with West Sussex Music. Together, we’ll be working alongside a number of local primary schools to nurture musical talent and deliver a series of music performances at the Regis Centre on the afternoon of Saturday 23rd September.
The funding will also enable us to work alongside the Sussex Community Foundation. In this collaboration, we’ll enable local people to gain production and theatre skills.
We’re very pleased to announce we’re planning more extensive Town Centre activities for this year’s event!
These will take place during 23rd and 24th September and will include the ‘Old Town’ area, plus London Road, High Street and Place St. Maur (next to the Regis Centre).
Activities include dance groups, live music, markets, children’s entertainment and more…
