The Petworth Festival exists to show off our beautiful part of the world, to bring magnificent performers and performances to the locality, and to engage with both our local audience and ones from much further afield.

Enjoy your scroll through our pages and in a number of instances you will find video links that tell you more about the individual events: this year these focus on the Artistic Director’s Trail, a series of events that bring the best to Petworth but unusually so. Unusual maybe, but accessible and of the highest quality, so do give them a go!

And in general do give the Festival a try if you haven’t been before. Our venues are all intimate, your welcome is guaranteed and the events themselves will never disappoint. We look forward to seeing you.

Stewart Collins
Artistic Director
