Time to register for arts festival

REGISTRATION is now open for those wanting to take part in the Eastbourne Festival 2011. The open-access arts festival runs from April 23 to May 15.

Every year the festival has grown and some interesting participants are already lined up. Performing arts include music, dance and cabaret, while the visual arts include artist’s open houses, workshops and exhibitions.

Anyone thinking of organising an event can go along to a regular events’ group meeting to discuss ideas.

Anyone wanting to attend a meeting or volunteer to help with the festival in any way should email info@eastbournefestival.co.uk

There is also an Eastbourne Festival webpage at www.eastbournefestival.co.uk and registration is also on-line. The closing date is Friday, January 28.

In addition, anyone representing a venue or who would like to sponsor either the festival itself or a particular event should contact Helen Warren on Eastbourne 731792 or via the website.
