Become a Friend

Thanks to the financial and personal support from the Friends of the Festival, we are able to put on a huge variety of events for all parts of the community with some of the best talent Sussex has to offer.

The 2019 Friends Priority Booking period is 8th to 21st July.

Friends Benefits

Friends membership costs just £20 a year and gives you access to a two week priority booking period before tickets go on sale to the general public.

As well as this early opportunity to purchase tickets Friends receive an exclusive invitation to the Friends of the Festival Launch event.

During the 2 weeks of the Festival local businesses have great offers solely for Friends of the Festival.

  • Local cinefilm company Real Transfer are offering free transfer of one 50ft reel or a half hour of video footage when you arrange to transfer your family memories to a DVD or hard drive. This can then be enjoyed for many years to come.
  • Ashleigh & Cole on Hurst High Street are giving a free gift on any purchase over £20.
  • More local deals coming soon!
  • Check back in for updates!
