Lindfield Arts Festival hosts free music festival

The Lindfield Arts Festival has announced plans to create a fantastic free music festival as part of its programme this coming May. The musical element, organised by Hereward Kaye, Musical Director and Founder of Rok Skool in Haywards Heath, will provide a wonderful showcase for local talent. 

“We listened to the feedback we received from previous visitors which suggested that a large scale performance would be well received and could even become a regular feature each year,” said Gabrielle Hall, Director of the 2013 Festival. “We are thrilled to be working with Herry and his team at Rok Skool. Music is such an important element of the art festival and this year we want to provide a variety of performances and workshops that cater for all tastes.”

This exciting news followed confirmation that the Charity Commission has just registered the Lindfield Arts Festival as a charity. “The organising team is delighted,” said Gabrielle. “It was really important for us to secure the future for the festival which brings thousands of visitors to Lindfield each year,” she said. “We have to raise a substantial amount to pay for the festival and I hope that, with our new charity status, sponsoring the festival will be an even more attractive option for local businesses and funding bodies that we approach,” she continued.
