Lindfield Arts Festival: Hilary Kennett and Maggie Lloyd are back on the Lindfield Arts Festival arts team this year and are looking for more local professional and amateur artists to exhibit. We are excited to announce that we will be exhibiting artwork over the festival weekend in the new school hall at Lindfield Primary Academy once again. This is an amazing gallery style space with loads of natural light and a perfect setting to display the artwork of our local professional and amateur artists.

Many of the shops on the High Street will be displaying samples of the works in the exhibition, and some artists will be opening their studios in our arts trail.

If you would like to exhibit on 9th & 10th September, please email, together with a couple of photos of your work, for details:
