Enchanted Horsham, the dazzling festival for families and friends of all ages, returns to Horsham Park on 23, 24 and 25 August 2019. And as part of the Horsham District Year of Culture 2019 programme, it is bigger and more spectacular than ever.
Taking place from 5pm to 11.30pm daily it is a wonderland of entertainment, music and fun. Meet Gnomus the incredible 4m tall puppet and Keeper of the Dragon’s Eggs, and before you dig for dragon bones… perhaps you would like to fly across the sky as a dragon looking down at the event using a Dragon’s Eye Virtual Reality headset?
Listen to an eclectic lineup of rock ‘n’ roll, reggae, jazz, ska, along with the UK’s best Beatles cover band and be sure to see Princess the unicorn, who will enchant you with her beauty. The magic continues as you become immersed in the mermaid’s tales and interact with life-sized puppets; and there’s circus performance, street theatre and circus workshops, along with roving bands, entertainers and of course, Harris’s Vintage Victorian Funfair.
Boutique stalls will tempt you as you wander through the vibrant market to find unique items to adorn both you and your lifestyle, and as you are assailed with tempting aromas, what will you treat your taste buds to? Choose from a mouth-watering array of global street food stalls and pop-up restaurants as they nestle alongside beer from Harvey’s, Kent Cider, wine, champagne, gin and cocktail bars.
As dusk falls, a huge mechanical dragon with pyrotechnical performers headlines the spectacular fire show and heralds the opening of The Secret Illuminated Gardens. As the magical gardens reveal themselves and bring to life the dragon’s eggs and mystical tales, the beautiful illuminations, large scale projections, and performers, will light your way with pathways of light and fire!
Don’t forget to come dressed in your most ‘Enchanted’ costume, to pose on the catwalk and see if you will be the lucky winner of the £500 goody bag awarded to the ‘Best Dressed’ child, adult or dog! And will you dance the night away in the silent disco or perhaps relax and watch a film in the silent cinema, where you can see The Greatest Showman, The Princess Bride & Enchanted? Lucky winners will receive a Family VIP Ticket worth £150, which includes fast track entry for the all 3 days of the Bank Holiday weekend; a glass of sparkling wine or soft drink, and entry to the VIP marquee.
