Big plans are already underway for the fifth Lindfield Arts Festival to be held on the 12th and 14th September 2014, which sees three local friends teaming up to take over as the Arts Festival Directors, sharing the responsibility of organising and hosting this popular local event.
In order to retain the character of the past four years of this local well loved Arts Festival, it is anticipated that the art and craft exhibitions, workshops and performing arts events will remain focused on the village hub using community areas including the local schools, churches, Common, pond and the High Street shops, pubs, community spaces and eateries with trails, exhibitions, activities and events scattered through the village over the three day festival.
Inspired by a passion for the local community, the theme of Quintessential Lindfield which will focus on portraying, through the arts, Lindfield life by time travelling from the past to the present and then beyond to the future year of 2214, while celebrating the quintessential spirit and lasting character of our unique and historic village. The theme will be split over the three days with a different period of time inspiring the exhibitions and activities for each of the days: Friday will focus on life in the village in the past; Saturday on the present day life in the village (2014); and Sunday on what the future life will potentially look life from 2014 to 2214.
Life in Lindfield during each time period will be thoroughly explored through inspirational exhibitions, workshops and unique activities suitable for the whole village ranging from inspiring art and craft exhibitions, stunningly preserved classic cars and motorbikes, through to rousing musical extravaganzas, dramatic theatrical productions, sensational dance performances and workshops, adventurous geo-caching and lots more. It is anticipated that there will be fabulous gala evenings on both the Saturday and Sunday nights bringing together, world class professional and local talented performers of all ages culminating in awe inspiring musical and theatrical performances. Ensemble Reza have already been confirmed as a headline act, dazzling Lindfield with spectacular classical concerts for both adults and children.
