SOUTHDOWNS FOLK FESTIVAL 2016

Following successful negotiations over the past few months, the Southdowns Folk Festival and management at the Regis Centre in Bognor Regis are delighted to announce that they will be working together to deliver the very popular event between 23 & 25 September.

Festival Chairman, Roger Nash said: " Working closely with our colleagues at the Regis Centre and Town Centre Management, we are able to pool resources, talent, event and entertainment expertise which will result in us delivering another great Southdowns Folk Festival which has become so popular over the past three years. We aim to make the Festival in 2016 more Town Centre focussed with the Regis Centre and Alexandra Theatre as the linchpin, plus much more music, dance and other related events going on in the Town Centre, the Place St. Maur and involving the William Hardwicke and other hostelries in and around the central shopping area. We won`t be using Hotham Park this year, but plan to incorporate many of the popular things that took place in the Park, into the Town Centre".

Hazel Latus from the Regis Centre added: " We`ve loved hosting the Southdowns Folk Festival over the past three years, and every year the atmosphere and standard of music and dance has been fantastic. We want to help continue this which is why we are very happy that we have reached agreement on how we will go forward for the 2016 event ". The next few weeks will see a lot of work to put the detailed event programme together, and it`s hoped that by the end of January or early February, the Festival headliners and support acts will be announced, with ticket and other details to follow shortly.
