Local and Live Festival 23 October to 5 December

Local and Live is a celebration of local creativity and the start of a return to live performances,

Every weekend from the end of October to the beginning of December 2020, our mini-festival is a showcase of exciting events to suit all tastes, including some family events.

The festival will give local writers, actor, poets and musicians an opportunity to perform to smaller crowds alongside some live or recorded broadcasting of events to reach a wider audience.

Shoreham Wordfest is working in partnership with Ropetackle Arts Centre.  The festival is supported by funding from the Arts Council and Adur District Council, bringing lively new entertainment in a Covid-safe environment, following all current government guidelines.

Tickets are very competitively priced, mostly £8 with a festival pass of 10 events for £60.  Seats will be limited to allow for social distancing so don’t delay in buying your tickets.

The winning 10 word short stories and 10 line poems for our 2020 competition are now on the website, along with a short video of the celebration evening on Sunday 11 October.
