Sarah and Geoff hit the airwaves

Mid Downs Radio recently interviewed Chair of the Trustees, Geoff Heath and designer, Sarah Reynolds at their studios in the Princess Royal Hospital, Haywards Heath.

Having the opportunity to broadcast locally to the community is an important part of Lindfield Art Festival’s marketing strategy.

Programmes are now available, from which you can see the wide variety of events and activities happening all through the day. 17th September 2016 will be a day to remember, one filled with art, crafts, music, dance and much much more.  For more information enquiries@lindfieldartsfestival.com

A big thank you – a letter from the Chair

18th – 20th September 2015

The 2015 LAF Team, led by myself, have now had time to sit down and evaluate the 2015 Lindfield Arts Festival.

With a small team and despite no dedicated artistic director, we can say that this year’s contained Festival was a resounding success in more ways than one. We have had consistently good feedback from those connected to the Festival, performers and local residents, most of whom attended. There was a varied, exciting programme which, with the back drop of Lindfield’s iconic High Street, showcased local talented actors, musicians, dancers, authors, artists and more.

Once again Lindfield Arts Festival is very grateful to their commercial sponsors particularly Barratt Homes, the charity support from local Rotary groups, Lindfield Preservation Society and The Comber Trust, local District and Parish Councils’ grant funding, Friends of the Festival and local traders that enabled the Festival to go ahead by providing the necessary financial support.

In practical terms, there are a host of thank-you’s to be offered to the army of volunteers including the hard-working Team LAF 2015 for their practical help before, during and after the Festival days’ events. We were delighted that the Lindfield Bonfire Society were able to provide much needed refreshments for the record number of people attending the Arts & Crafts displayed in the King Edward Hall.

We very much appreciated your support this year, and hope that we can look forward to your continued interest for the 2016 Lindfield Art Festival.

Yours sincerely

Geoff Heath

Chairman of the Trustees
