We’re always thrilled to hear when people have enjoyed their experience at Arundel Festival. Thank you so much to everyone who has contacted us through our website and on social media with such lovely comments. See you in 2018!

‘Many congratulations to you and the committee for a wonderful festival. There was an immense amount of hard work involved and you all stepped up to the plate.’

‘Arundel is a superb town, with a superb festival and we truly hope you have all given yourselves (the committee) a big pat on the back.’

‘Go every year and it’s always a great day out. Love the art trail, get to see lots of wonderful art and snoop inside some beautiful houses at the same time!’

‘Thank you Arundel for a fabulous day out on the Saturday while we were down visiting family……We thought the festival was amazing. Street entertainment, singing, music on every street, Watching the delight on the kids faces with the bubble man & the highlight for me had to be the Heavy Plant Hire man, he was so funny. You certainly know how to put on a spectacular event.’

‘Great street activities and Jubilee provided opportunities for different music tastes. Closing on the cobbles last night will be memorable.’

‘Fabulous Festival, thoroughly enjoyable in and out of costume. Expertly arranged from start to finish xxx’

‘Just the best Festival this year that I can remember, brilliantly done. (Just someone brief the ducks next year on which way to paddle!!)’

‘Stumbled across the Festival today and all I can say is wow.. What a great afternoon we have had in the sunshine. So lovely to see such community spirit. The music in Jubilee Gardens was ace. We are down in West Sussex until 1st September and have said we will be sure to pop by again this week. There are so many tea shops and restaurants we also want to try.’

‘Excellent festival…really brings the best out in a lovely town.’

‘Took family to the festival, had a great day. Watched dragon boat racing; live music; stilt walking and performance cars. Fab day.’

‘Since I moved to Arundel 6 years ago, I have gone to this event every year. I love the atmosphere, the Gallery Trail and the Jubilee garden stage (ran by the Red Lion pub). It’s wonderful the town has this, it is family friendly and has something for everyone over the ten days. The last day (bank holiday Monday 28th) they have a vintage day were people dress up as 50’s pin ups etc and their are retro vehicles on the streets. All in all, it is lots of fun and I’d highly recommend it!’

‘Love it as always… Hats off to ALL who dedicate their time and effort for all our enjoyment.’

‘Well done for your exceptional effort in putting on another great festival, it was a huge amount of work that you guys did to make it such a great success. High five!’

‘Really great weekend we came Friday, Sunday and last night, definitely be going next year! Fireworks and the band at the end of last night was brilliant. And a big shout out to the security guys on the gate who stopped my two little ones running off outside, really nice guys too, it’s nice to go somewhere and feel safe and secure especially with the kids , great job everyone x’

‘Only recently moved to Arundel and even though I was only in Chichester have never been to the festival. Have absolutely loved it – such a wonderful community event! Loved the art trail, Abba on the Hill, the vintage day and the champagne bar overlooking the river and stage. We were so lucky to have such wonderful weather too! Local towns and cities (Chichester!) have a lot to live up to. Well done and thank you to all who made it such a brilliant festival.’

‘Wonderful atmosphere , such a really great time, so much going on, everyone really entering into the event with great enthusiasm …’

‘Every year, Arundel surpasses itself. So proud of our little town for being such a hub of culture and talent.’

‘Yet again a fantastic festival. Thank you to everyone involved in making it such a success.’
