The Festival of Chichester is a month-long celebration of the arts running from mid-June to mid-July each year in the historic city of Chichester. Classical music, rock, blues, jazz, folk, pop, cinema, spoken word, community concerts and shows, arts & crafts, dance, theatre, church, food & drink, walks and tours, sport and a lot more.
The 2021 festival will run from Saturday 12 June to Sunday 11 July.
We present a truly exciting and varied line up of over 200 events every summer, combining a brilliant programme of classical music with the best in jazz, blues, folk, rock, pop and world music.
Add thrilling theatre, book events, talks and poetry, exhibitions, walks, tours, cinema, open days and galas and there really is something for everyone. Grounded in the Chichester community, the Festival aspires to the stars. We are pleased to welcome local and international performers of the highest calibre.
We are delighted to have the continuing support of our distinguished Festival Patron, Dame Patricia Routledge.
