Festivals and events held around Chichester for 2017 – dates and venues.

Festivals and Fairs and special events are always loved by people as the organisers go to such lengths to make them fun and enjoyable, often for all the family. Chichester and the local area has several Festivals throughout the year. Here are the Summer and most notable ones:

Festival of Speed, 29 June-2 July

Chichester International Film Festival – 10-27 August
A thoughtfully curated programme of British and international films with exciting opportunities to catch little-seen gems. Last year’s festival included a focus on films from China and Iran.

Arundel Festival – 19-28 August
Volunteer-run arts festival which includes street entertainment, a gallery trail and a theatre trail. Highlights include open-air Shakespeare in the grounds of Arundel Castle.

The most brilliant vintage motor show and period costume show which is based at Goodwood Motor Circuit. Always wear period / vintage clothes to this event – it really makes a difference to the whole experience for you (easy to get hold of or compromise – an engineers boiler suit / frock with a suitable hat – it’s NOT difficult!)
