Arundel Festival needs a new Committee, and new ideas! This is your opportunity to contribute to both. Please come to the Way Forward meeting at the Town Hall at 7pm on Tuesday 21st October.


There will be short presentations on the history and development of the Festival, and the background to the 2014 Festival; followed by an opportunity to put forward your views and network with like-minded people.


Places are limited so please register below if you are interested in attending.


The opinions expressed on 21st October will be collated, and emailed out in a Bulletin. 


If you can't attend the meeting but wish to contribute your views please fill out the form, via the link below.





A follow-up meeting, and the Festival AGM, will be held on 11th November when all new committee members will be invited to put themselves forward. 




Arundel Festival  flourished this year with the heroic efforts of many but in particular great thanks are owed to our chariman Ash Kent and Operations Manager, Woody who managed to pull a giant 10 days of fun out of the bag.  


Enourmous thanks also go to the Arundel Festival Committee, Arundel Festival team, volunteers, sponsors, advertisers, supporters, the generous members of the community of Arundel, Arundel Town Council, the press, and all the other kind people who helped in whatever way, large or small for all the immense hard work, love and support that made this year another great one! 


Please take a look at our support page to see all the great businesses, individuals and organisations that supported the Arundel Festival 2014.
