Hurst Festival aims to provide people with two weeks of enjoyment in September during which they can meet each other, experience something new and feel connected to the local community. The Festival has grown year on year to offer more than 80 events to thousands of locals at venues all across the village of Hurstpierpoint.
We're delighted to be playing at the popular 'Super Sunday' featuring lots of local live music and entertainment. Tickets: free event Venue: South Avenue Recreation Ground, Hurstpierpoint More details here
We're delighted to be the December musical guests for this fantastic event! Part concert, part singing workshop, part ceilidh dance, part fundraiser and part community feast – UpRoar is literally an all-singing-all-dancing community shindig!
‘It’s like a festival in an afternoon!’ – UpRoar People’s Ceilidh Participant
Each month, UpRoar welcomes a different special guest from the wide and wonderful world of progressive folk, and invites you to a matinee concert with our guest. This is followed by a singing workshop led by choral activist Kirsty Martin and then a few ceilidh dances – dancers of all abilities and penchants welcome! We then share a community feast together, while learning about a cause / organisation that is close to our guest’s heart.
Tickets: Not yet released. £20 / 15 / 10 / under 8s free. Group discounts are available. Please email for details. Venue: Brighton Unitarian Church, New Road, Brighton, BN1 1UF
