We’re starting off with the Comedy Night and after a good night’s rest will prepare Lindfield High Street for its traffic free day of fun and frolics.  The Plays will be one of the main features but don’t forget the workshops happening around the Village and the activities, performances and art and craft displays.

Sunday has the Barefoot Players in the Lindfield Primary School performing their ‘Little Women’ whilst there will be a band playing in the Stand Up to round the Festival off.

Sue PearsonSaturday and Sunday in the King Edward Hall have a wonderful exhibition of Arts and Crafts.  Surely there’ll be something for everyone and it’s not too early to shop for Christmas is it?

Lots for everyone to see and do – join us. enquiries@lindfieldartfestival.com 

 

King Edward Hall and the WI

WI First-meeting

Lindfield Women’s Institute Celebrating 100 years

Exhibiting in the Jubilee Room, King Edward Hall

Saturday 19th and Sunday 20th September 2015

The first WI meeting in the UK was held in Llanfairpwll on Anglesey, Wales, on 16 September 1915.  Since then, the organisation has grown to become the largest women’s voluntary organisations in the UK with over 212,000 members in 6,600 WIs.

The WI was first established to educate rural women, and to encourage countrywomen to get involved in growing and preserving food to help to increase the supply of food to the war-torn nation.  Education and the sharing of skills have always been at the heart of the organisation, and this remains true today.

Whilst the meeting venues might have changed from the local village hall to local café, the ethos and reputation of the WI remains the same, and women join now to meet new friends, learn new skills and make a difference on matters that are important to them now as fellow members did in 1915.
