Lindfield Arts Festival tunes up for 2017

By Lynn Tulip

Plans for the 2017 Lindfield Arts Festival are coming along well. Being led by Mike Steer, Stix to his friends, an innovative programme is planned for 8-10th September 2017 with forward planning for the next few years’ events as well.

The Trustees are delighted that Stix has a mix of new and long-standing team members committed to bringing the eighth Festival to fruition.

This year, the weekend coincides with the BBC’s Last Night of the Proms on Saturday 9th September 2017. With this in mind, Stix is wanting to encourage members of the local community to embrace this wonderful event and watch it on Lindfield common, in a local public venue (to be announced in due course) OR in the comfort of their or someone else’s living room as part of an Open Living Proms Event. So how will this work?

Team LAF is looking for ‘hosts’ who will be happy to welcome guests to their home to listen and watch the performance together. If you think you will be at home that night and you have one, two or more armchairs free in front of the TV and would like to open your door to guests to share the Proms experience, then let us know. Email and the LAF Team will give you more information.

Lindfield Arts Festival continues to be committed to supporting emerging artists and young people who are developing their artistic talents or aspire to a career in the arts. So if you have, or know of a budding artist, actor, dancer, writer or musician the Festival team will be happy to consider how to showcase their talent. For more information or to make suggestions please call Stix on 07868 879084.
