A Bit about the festival

The Steyning Festival 2024 programme is now finalised and full details are available on this website. With over 90 events – with 30 aimed specifically at children – this promises to be a bumper festival. Our aim, as always, is to provide a wide programme of artistic and community events which offer exciting and stimulating experiences for the people of Steyning and the surrounding area.

Over the ten days of the festival, we will be offering a potpourri of entertaining and illuminating events ranging across the genres of Theatre, Music, Visual Arts, Walks and tours, the Environment, Literature, Community and Comedy. As with past festivals, many of these events will be taking place in our Big Top where, as well as the entertainment on offer, you will also be able to avail yourselves of our bar and cafe and the exciting range of food vans.

The Festival is indebted to the group of Festival Friends who have supported us over the years. For those past Friends who wish to continue with their support and those new Friends whom we hope to welcome to our family, we will launch the programme for registration in early 2024.
