Petworth Festival presents the musical equivalent of a musical and theatrical treasure hunt in the beautiful grounds, gardens and woods of Bignor Park. By kind permission of Lord & Lady Mersey audiences of all ages will be encouraged to go in search of over 25 different ‘happenings’ taking place in glades, gazebos, follies and clearings around the park. The performing company includes Travelling Light Circus’s Playground of Illusions, Handmade Theatre’s Too Many Cooks, This Is My Theatre’s Alice in Wonderland, Nearly There Yet’s Memory Man, and groups of top achieving young musicians from the Petworth based West Sussex Music Trust, and the choral forces of tip-top local choir, the Leconfield Singers.
For an entire afternoon the woods, gardens and lawns will be alive to the sound of music, laughter, surprise.... and applause.
Refreshments will be available from Badgers of Coultershaw.
Generously sponsored by the Cameron Mackintosh Foundation, Canice and Kate Hogan and Seaford College
