There is only one week to go until go until Enchanted Horsham, the new and exciting family festival with illuminated pleasure gardens, brings Horsham Park to life from 4pm to Midnight on the 27th, 28th and 29th July.
Definitely one not to miss, this Summer Wonderland will be infused with a huge variety of sights and sounds for all ages to enjoy. Experience first-hand the street theatre and a vintage funfair, the dragon’s eye through VR headsets, belly dancers, fortune tellers and family activities, along with a market celebrating local lifestyle and fashion, street food and drink.
And when you wander through the vibrant market, marvelling at the diverse entertainment and tempting aromas, you will find unique items to adorn both you and your lifestyle including art, toys, curiosities, homewares, garden wares and artisan foods. In the Fashion Tent be inspired by the creative catwalk shows and take part yourself in support of St Catherine’s Hospice; before you peruse the boutique and hand-crafted clothes and accessories for women, men and children alike.
But what will treat your taste buds too? Choose from a mouth-watering array of global street food stalls and pop-up restaurants as they nestle alongside beer from Harvey’s, Kent Cider, wine, champagne, gin and cocktail bars.
The enchantment will then continue as you become immersed in the enchanted mermaid’s tales and interact with life-sized puppets, street entertainers and the riot of fun in the illuminated circus tent. And, make sure you set aside time to meet Princess a real live unicorn at 5pm, 6.30pm and 9.30pm. Magically awakened from her slumber, and as old as time itself, she is so very special. What magical powers could she impart to you….healing powers, freedom, power or speed?
Performing until dusk, the music stage will be alive with an eclectic mix of reggae, acoustic, jazz, swing, samba and salsa. Roving bands and beautiful soundscapes will drift throughout the festival with Harry’s Tricks, The Scorchers, Salsadelic, The Mountain Firework Company, and Hotpot setting the vibe, in addition to the mellow sounds in the sensational Kent Cider Reggae Tent.
Then as dusk falls, the wondrous secret illuminated gardens will reveal themselves and magically bring to life unicorns, dragons eggs and mystical tales. The beautiful illuminations, stunning projections, light shows, performances, music and pathways of fire will set the scene and the evenings activities will commence…..
For it is only at dusk that the Silent Disco in the Neon Circus Tent comes to life. Have your face painted in UV paints and glow as the after dark activities commence with fire performers, acrobats, jugglers, LED hoopers, trapeze artists and magicians.
