Hurst Festival 2014 Thanks 


Hurst Festival has flourished yet again in its tenth year, with over 70 high quality events, attracting a high number of visitors to a rich and diverse programme.

Enormous thanks go to the Festival committee, helpers, volunteers, sponsors, advertisers, generous members of the community, the press and all the other kind people who helped in whatever way. Thanks for making it a great one!


As this year’s Festival finishes the next one is being planning and we are looking for new ideas and new committee members. If you wish to have the opportunity to contribute to this evolving Festival please contact us on for further information.


 The eleventh Hurst Festival dates are 12th to 26th September 2015.


The Hurst Festival spreads over two weeks and brings together both the amazing local talent within our village and a healthy scattering of leading international performers that have a connection with the beautiful setting that is Hurstpierpoint.

The aim of the festival is predominantly to entertain you, but also to open your mind to so many different aspects of life that you can enjoy. We are showcasing the work of musicians, singers, writers, thinkers, actors, brewers, farmers, artists and so very much more.

Hurst Festival is much more than a two week event though. All year round the committee, a team of helpers, friends, artists, sponsors and, of course, you contribute to build a great series of events.
