Booking Information

18 March 2020:

To our dear Friends, Sponsors and supporters of the Petworth Festival

It will probably come as no surprise that our festival launch event for Sponsors, Patrons and Friends on 16 April is cancelled and that priority booking will not begin on 17 April as previously advised.

The current health crisis has inevitably required a significant revision to our plans for this coming summer, and as a responsible organisation we will be abiding by all recommendations and instructions coming from the government and public health services.

We still hope to be able to run what is a wonderful summer festival in prospect, but we will advise on our plans and contingencies as soon as we are able.

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

With every good wish

Stewart Collins and The Petworth Festival Team
