Lindfield Arts  Festival are delighted to welcome Circus Brighton to this year’s street festival.

Opening the Festival will be stilt walkers, throughout the day you will see circus performers based by the Red Lion  alongside a classic car show and street plays, dancing exhibitions and buskers.  Come along and try your hand at circus skills and watch the scheduled performances.

Lindfield Arts Festival is particularly interested in the development of circus skills for young and old and will offer the community the chance to try out tightrope walking – good for balance and co-ordination, juggling, hula hooping, plate spinning and more.  There will also be a ballooning workshop and a wandering balloon artist to enthral you.

Graffiti in the High Street I hear you say! Yes, for Lindfield Arts Festival we are delighted to welcome back Tom Goulden, Can Control Team to run a competition and some workshops on Saturday 17th September 2016.
