The countdown to this September’s Hailsham Festival of Arts and Culture was officially launched at Gallery North on Saturday.

The Gallery was packed with around 70 members of the public and organising committee.

Plans for this year’s Festival were unveiled and 10,000 Festival programmes and posters made available for distribution over the next month.

Festival Artistic Director Jenny West said, “It’s fantastic to see such a large crowd here today and we’re excited that the 7th annual festival is now launched.

“As ever the organising committee have worked hard to put together an inspiring programme of events.

“This year the Festival is bigger than ever with around 30 events and some exciting multi-cultural highlights”.

She continued, “Over the last few weeks we’ve been busy creating the Festival Programme, posters and signs which will very soon be appearing around the town.”

The Festival will run from September 7-15 in venues around Hailsham and Hellingly.

Festival Programmes will be available in outlets in Hailsham and the surrounding areas from this week and tickets are now on sale from the Hailsham Pavilion website and box office (01323 841414).
