2022 Petworth Festival: 13 – 30 July SUMMER FESTIVAL BOX OFFICE NOW OPEN

2022 Petworth Festival Literary Week: 28 October – 6 November

From our Artistic Director

Dear All

Following on from our 2022 a genuinely heart warming and entertaining curtain raiser – our all-star ‘Royal Variety Show’ in celebration of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee – we are genuinely excited to present the 2022 Petworth Festival programme and hope you will find multiple reasons similarly to enthuse.

I was going to say that we are looking forward to being back to ‘business as usual’ Festival this year following the hiatus of the last two years, but in fact we would never deliver a ‘festival as usual’ – a Petworth Festival should only ever be business as unusual… and we think that’s what we have lined up for this summer.

New events, new venues, new collaborations and, above all, new performers – or at least new to the Petworth Festival – are all part of this year’s mix, although hopefully the whole will always remain the recognisable fortnight that has so clearly become a focal point for so many people’s diaries.

Elsewhere do look out for events specially programmed as part of Chichester District’s summer-long ‘Culture Spark’ and – of course – the lunchtime and coffee events featuring young musicians. So many of these concerts have been life-affirming over the years and this year’s crop looks as enticing as ever!

And please don’t forget our extra event this year – Jubilation! our all-star Royal Variety Show on Saturday 28th May. All details are just a click away…
