We’ve been closely monitoring the situation and were hopeful that the festival could be something for us all to look forward to in these difficult times, maybe later in the year. However, it has become clear that, for your safety and that of people with learning difficulties living at Hft Sussex, it is simply not possible for this year’s event to go ahead.
We are so grateful to all the suppliers, performers and vendors who had agreed to support CoreFest this year; and to everyone who was planning to come along. Whether this was to be your first CoreFest experience or you were looking forward to returning for another year, we really appreciate your support.
If you had purchased tickets already, you should by now have received an email update. If it hasn’t arrived, please contact us.
We are already working on CoreFest 2021 and hope to be able to confirm the date very soon. In the meantime, some of the bands have very kindly offered to support us in other ways, so please do look out for details of other events being announced later this year.
We are really sorry to let you down and can’t wait to see you back in our orchards in 2021. Until then, please stay safe, keep healthy and look after each other.
Saturday’s musical line-up includes some many of our favourites from last year’s event, headlined by Sussex’s own Murdoch’s Crazy Eyes. The main stage is complemented by a range of shows and workshops for all the family in our bandstand and circus tent. Plus aerial acrobatics, fire shows, silent disco and brand new interactive family fun zone.
Watch this space for full line-ups coming soon!
Corefest continues with a second fantastic line-up, headlined by local favourites Iron Tyger; back by popular demand following a triumphant closing set at last year’s event.
