Lindfield Arts Festival: team and trustees want to thank everyone who contributed to the success of the festival last weekend. The variety and quality of the arts were amazing. The High Street buzzed with performances, exhibitions, buskers and dancers. Circus Brighton was incredible. The concerts and workshops were well attended and the feedback has been most positive. Without the expertise of the workshop leaders who generally give their time free of charge , there would be no activities and we thank them for sharing their knowledge and experience with our visitors. We hope everyone enjoyed themselves. A special mention and thanks must go to the Sponsors, Friends of the Festival and Volunteers without whose support we would not be able to put on such an extravaganza, together with the generosity of the pubs and restaurants in the village that offer their facilities to the performers. A final thank you too to the High Street traders, local church and halls whose facilities benefit all the visitors. Lindfield Arts Festival has been a great success. Well done all and see you in 2017!
