A Delightful Evening with Great Friends

We were thrilled to welcome a full house, and we extend our heartfelt gratitude to our gracious hosts, Hannah Hereema and Henrietta Hughes, along with their Nyetimber team, for generously providing us with the splendid venue of the Medieval Barn. We’d also like to express our appreciation to our friends and sponsors at NFU Mutual, including Chets Modi, Matthew Baker, and Tracy Rooke, for their valuable support.

We express our deep gratitude to the Festival Friends, the heart of our community. Their exceptionally generous contributions have been truly honourable. We invite and encourage everyone to consider becoming Silver or Gold Friends, as it will significantly contribute to our goal of raising £20,000 to bring forth Sussex’s premier Classical Music Festival, The Shipley Arts Festival. Your support is instrumental in making this vision a reality. Kindly renew your membership or join our group using the following link

Together, let’s create a memorable cultural experience for Sussex!
