Annual Review & Join Up Meeting - 23rd January 2020
The Henfield Festival of Gardens and Arts Group is holding its Annual Review and Join Up meeting on Thursday 23rd January at The Haven, Henfield. We invite you to join us from 7.30pm to learn about our plans for 2020 and for us to share the success of the 2019 Festival. Refreshments will be available. We have two new initiatives to introduce to the Festival: a link up with the work of Sustainable Henfield 2030; a planted wheelbarrow challenge. Brief details are given below.
Alongside our current gardens we are always looking for new gardens to join the Festival. We are also keen to involve local artists and musicians in the event. The closing date for all garden, artist and musician applications is 1st March 2020. If you have any questions about the forthcoming Festival, get in touch with us by using the Contact form in the main menu. Garden owners or potential Festival garden owners with specific questions can also contact Liz Taylor at: firstname.lastname@example.org, or telephone: 01273 491752.
