The Horsham District Year of Culture 2019 team is delighted to announce that its new printed programme of events and activities, for the second half of the year of celebrations, is out now.
The programme is the key to unlocking all that will be going on for the second half of the year, and features over 300 different events and activities across just about every town and village in the Horsham District.
The first six months of 2019 have seen us bring some of the very best of cultural events to the District. These have been characterised by highly successful sell out events; with rural touring theatre groups proving particularly popular, bringing our outlying village halls and community centres to life, and the first ever Horsham Film Festival and Sussex Comedian of the Year competition bringing a whole new perspective to culture for local people.
Horsham District Council Cabinet Member for Culture and Leisure, Cllr Jonathan Chowen, commented: “I am delighted that we are now entering the second half of our Year of Culture celebrations.
“Our rally cry at start of the Year of Culture was to “get involved” and we are really excited by both the vast numbers of people going to see and take part in events, and the sheer volume of community groups wanting to stage events and activities in the first half of the year.
“I am sure the second half of the year will be just as successful and I urge you all to get your hands on our latest programme so you don’t miss anything.”
Highlights coming up include:
Tree and Wood – an outdoor performance including image, sound, light and song in the forests of Leonardslee Lakes and Gardens;
The Red Lion – a hugely entertaining play about a small time, semi-pro football team, this performance will have wide appeal to local football; players, teams and supporters alike and will tour the District’s football clubs, schools and village halls;
And we will round the year off with a spectacular festive light and 3D projections show every evening throughout December in Horsham’s;
Market Square – Light up Horsham is a free to attend showcase of the different events that have happened throughout the year.
The new programme is available in all Horsham District libraries, leisure centres, The Capitol and Horsham Museum and Art Gallery, as well as many other local outlets.
