The Festival of Chichester launches on Saturday 15 June

With around 100 independently-organised events spread over a period of five weeks, the 2024 Festival of Chichester starts on Saturday 15 June.

All are welcome to join us between 11am and 2pm on Cathedral Green, (PO19 1PX, close to the Market Cross) for a low-key launch event that will whet appetites for what is in store over the coming weeks.

Stuart Loxton, Deputy Mayor of Chichester, and Chichester’s international best-selling novelist, Kate Mosse, will officially open this year’s Festival. There will be free entertainment from Dawn Gracie, Chichester Festival Youth Theatre and The Rosemary Bell Academy of Dance.

Meanwhile, don’t forget to book ahead for dozens of brilliant events lined up across all the arts, including music, book events with famous authors, poetry, art exhibitions, walks and tours, theatre and more!
