40th anniversary in 2018!

Petworth Festival (Tuesday 17 July to Saturday 4 August)


Tickets for this year’s anniversary summer festival are now available to purchase online at or by calling the box office on 01798 344576.

Petworth Festival celebrates 40 years in 2018!  Over 40 events covering classical and world music, jazz, comedy, theatre and the visual arts.

 To celebrate its ‘significant’ birthday Petworth Festival is pushing the boat out to celebrate its ongoing success story with a series of feature events that take it to a whole new level.

We are delighted to announce that members from our West Sussex Music County Ensembles will be performing at the Bignor Park event on Sunday 22 July.

The list of top names is unprecedented, and includes percussionist extraordinaire, Evelyn Glennie, comedians Alistair McGowan, Gyles Brandreth and Paul Merton, with classical music from international stars Steven Isserlis, Elin Manahan Thomas, Ji Liu and The King’s Singers. And this all without mentioning Scottish superstar Barbara Dickson and jazz and world music programmes worthy of any UK stage.
