Booking Information

31 March 2020:

We very much regret to announce that major changes have been forced on us as a result of the current health crisis. All events in July have been either postponed or cancelled, but, in what we hope will look like a shaft of sunlight in the otherwise grey skies, we are delighted to announce that we will be presenting a sequence of the absolute highlights of this planned Summer Festival in a special week of events that will precede the 2020 Literary Week.

The new AUTUMN FESTIVAL will now run between Friday 16 October – Sunday 1 November with a week of music and performance followed by the 10th Anniversary Literary Week.

We have already been overwhelmed by the support we have received from many of our Friends and Supporters, but the Festival will still need all the help we can get to enable us to overcome the many challenges the Covid-19 crisis has forced on us. As such we appeal to everyone who loves the Petworth Festival to help us survive into 2021 and beyond by making a donation, however small.

In the meantime, our overriding concerns remain for the wellbeing of our audiences, our supporters and our Festival team, many of whom are volunteers, not to mention the musicians and performers who bring so much to our lives.

We hope each of you stays well and we look forward to seeing you and to bringing you the unparalleled joys of music, words and performance later in the year.

Neil Franks (Chairman), Stewart Collins (Artistic Director) and the entire Petworth Festival Team


Friday 16 October - Sunday 1 November
