Join us if you want to be part of the Steyning Festival Team.
The first Steyning Festival was held in 2007 and came about with the vision and hard work of Anne Poupard
and a small group of enthusiastic local people. It was an annual event until 2010 when the decision
was made to alternate with the Country Fair, every other year starting in 2012.
We became a registered charity in 2014, with a vision to create and ambitious festival
to inspire innovation, collaboration, and community cohesion.
The Steyning Festival is wholly planned and organised by local volunteers and is run with and for the community.
The purpose of this event is to recruit local volunteers to join our team.
There are a number of skill sets needed such as business, marketing, administrative and event organising
that we urgently need in order to continue with the Festival.
So if you think you would like to be part of this great community festival team
please join us on Tuesday 19 October 2021.
Please register your interest on Eventbrite.
Steyning Festival 2021
“Just a quick note to congratulate you on the Steyning Festival.
We’d been having to Covid isolate and missed many of the events we would have
enjoyed but our brief exposure to it on the Sunday (Alec did a good long,
happy stint on the apple pressing machine), felt really joyful and well-organised.”
Well done to you and all the team!
Best wishes. Elisabeth and Alec
"I just wanted to thank you so much for a fantastic Steyning Festival.
This year it was about so much more than the events, although these were first class,
It was just what our community needed to lift our spirits, reconnect with one another, meet up with friends and simply have fun.
All the events I attended were great but I particularly loved the excellent play which was superbly acted in the Jarvis gardens,
the social evening at Omar and the Jazz on the Sunday. I am already looking forward to next year's festival!"
