Once again offering a veritable feast of entertainment, this year's Festival of Chichester is a celebration of all things arts.

2023's Festival runs from Saturday 10th June to Sunday 9th July 2023. Expect to find music across a variety of genres as well as theatre, art exhibitions, poetry and much more. A handful of the highlights in the programme include The Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra offering Midsummer Melodies and New Sussex Opera Chorus presenting an immersive production of Gounod’s Faust sung in a new English version, plus Bach’s cello works will be performed by Pavlos Carvalho playing suites 1 and 2.  Catch bestselling author Louis de Bernières performing poetry with help from concert pianist Elena Toponogova and actress Emily Rose Smith, while Cicestrian Kate Mosse will launch her new novel, The Ghost Ship in a Festival of Chichester exclusive.

There are over 90 events taking place across the four weeks so we recommend booking your tickets in plenty of time to make sure you catch your favourites.
