The Virtual Festival of Chichester line-up and how to access the events

Here’s how to access the festival events in two easy steps:

1. Go to our virtual festival page.
2. Click on the event you want to attend.

There will be a new event available to stream every day from 7pm. (The exceptions are that there will be an event on Saturday 13 June at 2pm, and live-stream events on Tuesday 16 June at 2.30pm and Wednesday 17 June at 9pm).

Once you have selected your event to stream, you will be taken to either a pre-recorded event (specially recorded for the festival) or to a live link where you will be able to watch the event live. 

All events will be available on the website to view once they have been released until at least the end of the festival, and probably longer – this depends on what each performer wishes.

Enjoyed an event? We’d love to hear from you. Why not post a review on Facebook, send us a tweet or post a picture on Instagram and tag us in it! Alternatively drop us an email. You can find all our social media links at the top of the page.
