A retrospective on the Virtual Festival of Chichester
The very first Virtual Festival of Chichester ran from 13 June to 12 July 2020 to replace the stunning line-up of performers booked for this year’s festival. Following the cancellation of live events because of the virus pandemic, the festival committee was determined that summer 2020 should still see a celebration of the arts but in a new form.
