Welcome to Petworth Festival

Click on the link to see Petworth Festival Introduction 2016

Our annual cultural feast awaits! It is with not a little excitement and pleasure that we reveal full details of the 2016 Petworth Festival and we hope you will feel surprised, delighted and confident that we have a genuinely stimulating two-plus weeks in prospect in and around Petworth come July. Stimulated yes, but also entertained, moved and sometimes hopefully amazed.

We are again proud to announce a line up of exceptional artists from across the genres, amongst whom we would have to pick out the great Bass-Baritone Sir Willard White, the pianists Joanna MacGregor and Ji Liu, the Brodsky Quartet, the one and only Paul Merton and his Impro Chums, and the equally impressive ’Showstoppers!’ troupe who, as I write, are once again making waves in the West End. But do remember that the intention is that every Petworth Festival event should be a gem so don’t miss traditional musician extraordinaire Sam Lee, The Monks from Tibet’s Tashi Lhunpo Monastery, vocal ensemble Stile Antico and in fact pretty much everything else. It’s not too good to be true and it should all be too good to miss!

We look forward to seeing you in July - do browse and enjoy the following pages. And of course thank you to our many patrons and sponsors. The Festival genuinely wouldn’t be possible without you.
