Organisers say the event will be a ‘summer wonderland for all the family’ and promise live music, street theatre, circus, a night market and ‘wondrous secret illuminated gardens ... magically bringing to life unicorns, dragons and mystical tales.’

Thousands of people attended Enchanted Horsham this summer, many later expressing their joy at it while others were left disgruntled about long queues to get in and queues for food and toilets.

Organisers say they have ‘taken on board all the feedback’ and announced that Enchanted Horsham will be held again next year on August 23,24 and 25 in Horsham Park where the size of the site will be increased and a large number of events included in the ticket price.

They say it will include spectacular fire shows with giant puppets and a fire-breathing dragon, circus shows, silent disco, theatre shows, street theatre performances, roving comic street theatre, live music on a mainstage, circus workshops, unicorn workshops, a fossil dig for dragon bones, interactive secret illuminated gardens, and more.

Other events will be available at an extra cost including vintage fairground rides, silent cinema, face painting, boutique market stalls and street food and bars.

‘Super early bird’ tickets are on sale priced at £10 and £2 for under 16s.
