The Virtual Festival of Chichester is set to launch on 13 June 2020!
Plans for the very first Virtual Festival of Chichester have been announced 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. As audiences are unable to go to the festival, this year the festival will come to them online via them clicking on to the festival website and following the links to a wealth of special events.
The plan is that for every day of what would have been the festival, a new event will be posted on this website ready for audiences to enjoy from Saturday 13 June to Sunday 12 July at 7pm, so that audiences can look forward to something new each day.
The festival opens with a jazzy launch from the Stardust Sussex Syncapators and continues every day for a month until 12 July. We hope people will log onto this website to follow the progress of our accumulating virtual festival.
The Festival of Chichester 2020 has regrettably been cancelled owing to the coronavirus.
The 2021 festival will fun from Saturday 12 June to Sunday 11 July.
