New Park Arts Festival

Wednesday 31st August and Thursday 1st September
New Park Centre Chichester

We are so excited to bring you a brand new event this summer, The New Park Arts Festival!

A two-day celebration of dance and song for adults. Enjoy top quality workshops, classes and performances at the New Park Centre, Chichester. Try a new dance style, sing your heart out and be thoroughly entertained by amazing shows.

Each day is split up into 8 sessions with the first at 10.15am (coffee from 9:30am), and the last starting at 7.30pm with breaks in between. During each session there are up to 4 options so you can pick and choose your bespoke timetable when you buy your ticket.

We have dancing, singing, performances, lectures and have worked out a timetable which means you wont be dancing flat out all day and can really enjoy the variety and you can view and download full timetable from the link above.

Sessions will be happening in the Old Dojo Hall, Jubilee Hall, New Dojo and the Auditorium, and there are limits on how many people can sign up to each session depending on the venue and the nature of the session (we anticipate some sessions will be fully booked very quickly).

Tickets are available in person from Showsteppers Dancewear shop in Quarry Lane, or online from the 21st May.
If you purchase your ticket online you will be contacted to choose your sessions.

£99 – 2 Day Ticket: 8 sessions per day
