The 2018 Lindfield Arts Festival: WE NEED YOU!

In 2017 Lindfield Arts Festival had one of its most successful years ever. Almost 4000 local people came to celebrate the Arts in all its diversity. With exhibitions, workshops and performing arts – the Festival had it all.

But none of this happened magically on its own. It took a team of dedicated volunteers to put on the festival – and this is where you could come in.

Are you a good organiser?

Do you want to meet new people and have some fun?

Are you interested in music, art, drama, dance?

Can you spare a little time over the coming year?

Do you want to help your local community in Lindfield?

By lending your skills, experience and abilities next year the Arts Festival will be even better. This is a call out for volunteers like you who want to give something back and make a big impact in the community they live in.

You could be new to the area, wanting to meet new people, or have an interest in the Arts with some free time to lend a hand? Maybe you came to the festival and saw where improvements could be made? Perhaps you work or have worked in the Arts or Entertainments industry before and want to volunteer your services? Or it could just be that you want to do something stimulating and rewarding to occupy your mind or gain new skills and experience? No matter what your desires, ambitions or background we’d love to hear from you!

Volunteering can make a difference to your own life and to the lives of those around you.

Be part of the Arts. Volunteer. Contact

The next Lindfield Arts Festival will be on Friday 21st and Saturday 22nd September 2018.
