A great Hurst Festival ahead for 2018...

By Katherine Jackman

Hurst Festival is delighted to announce Hurst Festival 2018 dates of Saturday 15th September – Sunday 30th September 2018.

Bringing together local, national and international talent, Hurst Festival caters for all with a varied programme including Children’s Workshops, Classical Music Soirees, Theatre, Art Exhibitions, Talks, Comedy, Cinema, Walks and Bushcraft.

One of the themes in 2018 will be around PEACE, to commemorate 100 years since the peace terms were discussed at Danny House, Hurstpierpoint in October 1918 for the armistice that brought peace at the end of the First World War.

Hurst Festival organisers say they will be encouraging performers and artists to involve the theme of PEACE, if they wish, within their work. This could be any form of expression to show the ways that people find peace in their lives, peace in our world, peace in our time or whatever your concept of peace may be. 

Hurst Festival is a not-for-profit organisation run by a committee of volunteers, and the diversity of the events we offer is only possible thanks to the generous financial support of the Hurstpierpoint Community Charity Shop and Hurstpierpoint and Sayers Common Parish Council. 

We are open to proposals for events and venues and as a community organisation we are always looking for enthusiastic people to join our committee or to volunteer at events. If you’re interested or wish to advertise in the Hurst Festival Brochure (11,500 circ.) please email info at hurstfestival.org.
