April - in the meantime the site will remain from last year so you can
get a flavour of what may be in store for 2006.

Arts come alive at festival time in Adur
Help celebrate 18 years of the Adur Festival
like to welcome you to the Adur Festival 2005 - and to invite you to help
us celebrate our 18th birthday by joining in with two whole weeks of varied
and colourful community based arts events.
This year we have a typically unpredictable festival which
I hope will intrigue and provoke. The Airport,
Barn and Lancing events are once again
complemented by a huge rosta of community organised activities.
We also have a new friend's scheme
offering discounted tickets and social activities, and we're pleased
to welcome yet more new sponsors.
I first played at the festival in 1992 and grew to love the spirit of
the area. My experience of other festivals throughout Europe in no way
prepared me for the wonderfully strange and creative chemistry of Adur.
Now, as Chairman of the Steering Group, my particular wish for Festival
05 is that more Adur residents come and join in.
Thankfully, as our sponsors realise, our catchment area is growing along
with our reputation and many of our shows will sell out straight away.
But its important to all of us that yet more people from our local community
are there to join in, to enjoy the events, even to help create next year's
festival and to keep the two week long party going this June!
