GOOD news - Henfield Festival of Gardens and Arts 2020 is’s some good news about our Gardens and Arts Festival 2020. It is going to happen! This year it's in a virtual format!

The “Virtual” Festival opens on Saturday 13th June and we invite you to step into the "gardens", look at nature’s art at work, and perhaps even listen to some of our musical acts and artists. Just click on

We hope that many of you will join us in this exciting event. Simply enter our website

Garden Openers who had registered with us were asked to submit pictures of their gardens, to show them off along with any plantings, so it will be as representative of the real thing as possible. In the same way we hope to also give you a flavour of "other" artists and musicians.

Of course we are saddened to have to cancel the real thing and hope that this will go some way to keep you involved in what has become a valued and longstanding village community event. Alas you will have to provide is your own tea, sandwiches and cake, the other most important part of the Festival.

Who knows how many of us may still be in isolation at this time. Hopefully you will welcome the chance to have a ‘ramble’ around the village. Please do share this news with your family and friends. This year the weather is not important,

Of course we will look forward to seeing around and ask you to note the dates of 12th and 13th June 2021: our next Festival!

Artists and Garden Openers - you will have noted details and the dates by which we hoped you will have submitted your photographs and we look forward to enjoy them these too.
