The Lindfield Arts Festival programme is continuing to build ready for the event which will take place on Saturday September 17.

There will be activities to suit people of all ages.

The many family-friendly events will include a graffiti workshop and competition, circus skills workshops and shows, dancing workshops and performances, story telling and creative writing and Discover & Be for very little ones.

We would encourage you to register from Monday August 1 on to ensure you have a place.

Most of the events are FREE but number restricted due to H&S and seating capacity! Your email receipt will be your ticket.

SWALK have kindly offered to sell tickets to the two workshops and one concert that require payment.

Mark Spofforth MBE, High Sheriff of West Sussex, will open the Festival at 10am and enjoy the festivities.

He and his wife, Von Spofforth, will spend much of the day enjoying the variety of arts on show.

Judging competitions is always a favourite, and Mark and Von have kindly agreed to judge the graffiti competition and award a prize for best in show for the Classic Cars.

Lindfield Dramatic Club are busying preparing their street play.

Did you know that the railway nearly came to Lindfield and not to Haywards Heath? Watch this first-hand and you will understand why.

On and off the High Street entertainment will also include Becky Steven’s dance workshops, buskers, face painting, a photography exhibition from James Winspear, Rok Skool, the Weald Ukulele players, African Drummers and authors and storytellers.

Once again, the King Edward Hall will host the popular arts and crafts.

Lucy Ellie, Lorna Collins, Mid Sussex Sinfonia and Rok Skool artists are all performing in The Stand Up, Bent Arms, Red Lion or United Reform Church.

You are sure to find something to keep the family amused all day!
