Whether you are looking for colourful local events and street festivals or professional performances on stage you will find something to entertain you in the coming months here in the Horsham District.

Horsham boasts an active events programme throughout the year including an Horsham English Festival in May, French and Itailan themed festivals, a summer carnival and a fantastic District-wide Food and Drink Festival in September. Autumn sees the return of the annual three day Town Centre Festival and throughout the summer over 60 free bandstand concerts perform in the Horsham Town centre every year.

Creative, colourful and exciting events take place in towns and villages across the District: Shipley and Steyning both organise superb Arts Festivals; the Steyning Country Fair regularly draws the crowds as it celebrates the traditions and heritage of the town; and Billingshurst comes alive at Christmas during 'BilliFest' - to name but a few.
