Hilary Knight, Lindfield Arts Festival joint project manager, told the Middy: “Our tenth anniversary festival is about bringing people together in celebration of the arts in all its diversity.

“It gives local performers and artists the chance to showcase their work to the wider community.

“Our festival programme is rich and diverse.

“If experimenting with creative art, perfecting your circus skills, indulging your spray painting techniques or introducing your little ones to Baby Opera piques your interest, then you are in for a real treat.
