Get ready for MADhurst

Midhurst is the heart of the South Downs National Park, and although historic and picturesque, it also holds a nationally recognised Music Arts and Drama Festival during the month of August- MADhurst!

Our online Box Office is now open and we have a great line up of talent at VERY good prices.

Opening the Festival is the Ian Young Allstars, made up of musicians from the HM Army, Royal Air Force and Royal Marines. This year they will be delighting the crowds with “Music from the Movies”- an absolute must!

If Jazz is not your bent then we have Opera in the beautiful Walled Garden at Cowdray, a candlelit Folk evening at Woolbeding Church, Top that off with some Comedy dinner theatre, a promenade Dinner at some of Midhurst’s finest restaurants and even a Murder Mystery to solve. There will be an Open Air Cinema for the children, French Market, Open Mics, Street Entertainment and much, much more.

A Festival wouldn’t be the same without a Rock Night down at Cowdray Ruins with a full line up of bands including Those Restless Knights and Hot n Sticky!

All rounded off with the hilarious Horne Section as part of their National Tour! You’ve seen them on 8 out of 10 Cats does Countdown and Taskmaster , and now local lad Alex Horne will be playing his home town of Midhurst on 31st August. It’s going to be a sell out, so get your tickets now!

You can keep in touch with everything MADhurst on our new website where you can but tickets for our events.
