Welcome to Arundel Festival 2018 Our award-winning Arundel Festival continues to be both a major regional attraction and an exemplary community event.

2018 is a very special year as we commemorate the Festival’s 40th birthday. In recognition of this special anniversary, you can enjoy a refreshed Festival programme with many acts appearing for the firsttime. It’s also the 30th anniversary of Arundel Gallery Trail, the largest and oldest walking trail in the UK, which continues to exhibit the work of a huge range of artists, both established and new. As well as the visual arts, the Festival offers a cultural showcase of theatre, music, street performance and more. As always, performance venues range from a front room in a tiny cottage to the huge Gothic Roman

Catholic Cathedral, galleries and roads to public parks and gardens, and even the River Arun. Over the two weekends, the town centre roads are closed to traffic so they, too, can become one huge performance space. It’s a time when the streets literally come alive with music, street performers, street food and stalls. Here at the Castle, we are delighted to welcome Illyria Theatre Company for the first time, presenting a remarkable al fresco production of The Merchant of Venice, in the beautiful Collector Earl’s Garden. Sincere thanks go to the Festival Committee and all the many volunteers who help to bring together this amazing ten-day celebration, raising thousands of pounds for charities through events like the Dragon Boat Race. We very much look forward to welcoming you.

Edward Norfolk The Duke of Norfolk

Arundel Festival encompasses everything we love about the Town. The festival showcases the many talented artists, actors and musicians that live here. It is the perfect opportunity for a staycation with the diverse mix of events on offer that appeal to all generations. The town also boasts excellent places to eat, stay and shop. This year is extra special as the festival is 40 years old and the Gallery Trail is 30 years old. Arundel residents love to dress up and party and the Bank Holiday Monday promises to be a ‘throw back’ to the 70’s. I do hope you can come and join us in the celebrations. Arundel Town Council is delighted to support this programme and recognises the huge amount of work put in by the committee and volunteers to ensure the community spirit of this unique Sussex Festival. Lucy Ashworth, Mayor of Arundel

Birthday celebrations all around It started with a simple idea in 1978. A staging of the Bard’s work in Arundel Castle’s Tilting Yard to raise money for the Silver Jubilee celebrations. The one-off event sold out – as did the extra 120 tickets that went on sale. The next year it seemed like a jolly good idea to do it all again. Once again, tickets sold out. Which is how it appeared that the Arundel Festival was officially born.

This was also the year that the first ever Arundel Gallery Trail saw houses around town open their doors to art lovers –and anyone of a curious disposition…

And what an entrance it made! The prestigious New Shakespeare Company from Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre staged William Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night within the Castle grounds. Renowned Arundel artist Oliver Hawkins designed the Festival logo, which is still used today.

In 1991, a painting of the Castle seen from Maltravers Street by Arundel architect and artist, Neil Holland, graced the festival programme cover. For the next three years, his paintings captured key scenes around town, including a rapturous audience watching a play on the Castle’s lower lawn.

The following year, it was back to the 1920s for a production of The Boyfriend. Ticket prices were the stuff of memories too – each one cost just £1.

To celebrate 20 years of the festival, 1997 was a bumper year. As part of the Arundel Fringe, which merited its own programme, there was a ‘Spot the Idiot’ event. To quote the programme: ‘This is a new feature of the Arundel Festival Fringe where you are looking for the most hilarious, ridiculous, idiotic, eccentric person or persons spotted in Arundel Square during the festival week.’ Would that... could that... happen today?

For those of you who can, cast your mind back to 1984…can you name any players from that year’s celebrity cricket match? Audiences were transported to New York in 1985, when The Trust Players staged Stephen Sondheim’s A Little Night Music, inspired by an Ingmar Bergman film. According to that year’s programme, champagne was ‘provided by Moet & Chandon’. Which suggests that it was free…oh, happy days! In 1987, the Wetlands & Wildfowl Trust on Mill Road took a Gallic flight. The Trust Players staged The Prodigious Snob, an adaptation of the French playwright Moliere’s Le Bourgeois Gentilhomme. Sadly, Moliere himself was no longer around to play M. Jourdain as he had in the 1670s. So, a Mr. Frank Baker took on the role instead. Fast-forward to Monday 28 August 1989, when just £2 bought a ticket to the centennial celebration of Charlie Chaplin’s birth, during which the comedian’s early masterpieces were show-cased at the Priory Playhouse on London Road.

6

The first Street Theatre day was held in 1998, and was such a success that it was staged again in 1999, when The Times newspaper proclaimed this ‘The best of British festivals’. Writing in the festival programme, Major General The Duke of Norfolk KG GCVO CB CBE MC DL said: ‘The 1999 Arundel Festival brings for your enjoyment the most wide-ranging programme we have ever presented. In this, the year of our golden wedding anniversary, my wife and I wish you a very happy festival.’ Actress and activist Vanessa Redgrave CBE led the cast of Planet Without a Visa, a programme of readings, monologues, songs and music on the subject of fractured society, refugees, exile and the dispossessed. That was Wednesday 1 September 1999, but it would no doubt be just as relevant today.

Arundel Festival 2018


Maybe because it struggled to contain the Festival’s stellar cast, the 2005 programme was the biggest yet, and since. Bursting from its pages were Romeo and Juliet’s doomed romance played out in the Castle’s Open Air Theatre, the strains of La Traviata from the Baron’s Hall and a firework concert by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. Singer songwriter Katie Melua also performed, whose album, ‘Call Off The Search’ was the UK’s biggest selling album of that year. In 2007, Girls Aloud rocked the stage on the Lower Lawns. Sharing the bill were Jamelia, X Factor winner Shayne Ward, Alfie Boe and Level 42. Festival-goers got the chance to fly high in 2011, with balloon flights taking off from the Mill Road meadows and soaring over the rooftops in the town. In 2012, the first ever children’s area was opened opposite Jubilee Gardens. There were music workshops, crafts and face painting – which probably attracted some older visitors too! In 2016, the clever photo on the programme cover perfectly summed up the festival that we know today. An incredible 40 years after it first began, the Arundel Festival is now a fantastic mix of equal parts art, music, street theatre, kid’s fun and sporting events. So happy 40th birthday Arundel Festival and happy 30th birthday Arundel Gallery Trail. May they both continue for many years to come.

Street Entertainment 2018 JANE CLARITY

They will be led and conducted by Juliet Robinson, a specialist music teacher who has taught music in both primary and secondary schools for over 30 years. The children will be singing songs in a wide range of styles from African, Scottish, Gaelic to Hip-Hop!

Dragon Heart Beats

DRAGON HEART BEATS The opening day of Arundel Festival will see a giant 30 foot-long and 20-foot high moving, fire- breathing, musical dragon descend into Market Square! Dragon Heart Beats is a dramatic live music and street theatre experience. With its extraordinary dragon and riveting, sometimes, darkly comic show, the energetic percussion and puckish spirit of Dragon Heart Beats’ three otherworldly performers brings wonder into the heart of any event, leaving audiences wide-eyed and amazed. Fiery dragon breath, smoke, lighting effects & pyrotechnics accompany the powerful percussive music, amplified by the dragon’s onboard sound system. Don’t miss it.

HAKUNA MATATA Hakuna Matata will have audiences open-mouthed as her show, Funky Fidelmi, is full of high-fly acrobaticdefying tricks, performed on an apparatus known as a Chinese pole, by a performer who’s just a little bit clumsy?

Thirty Years of the Arundel Gallery Trail Home is where the Art is

The Arundel Gallery Trail started in 1989 to be the visual arts element of Arundel Festival. Ann Sutton, MBE had the original idea and within hours had the support of Oliver Hawkins, Renee Bodimeade and Derek Davis. They achieved their aim to create a circular walking trail within the town centre, on which visitors could see ‘50 temporary galleries in cellars, conservatories, front rooms and back yards of houses, shops and offices’. Artists who took part in the early years will be familiar to Trail goers. Incredibly many of them have been regular exhibitors over the years, and some will exhibit in this special anniversary year. It is the variety within the Trail which visitors enjoy; they are able to see new work by regularly showing artists and follow their development, and at the same time see the work of other artists who may only show for one or two years. The Gallery Trail has helped to establish the reputation of artists and does so much to introduce visual arts to an extended public. Many gallery owners and curators from London and the South East come to the Trail in search of new artists.

16

1996 saw sculpture on the Causeway roundabout for the first time, and this was a large 12 ft high “Flatman” sculpture by Giles Penny. In recent years the Trail organisers Mark and Rebecca Ford have created several memorable large woven sculptures, some hanging from the Castle walls or floating on the River Arun! To commemorate the thirtieth anniversary of the Trail, Arundel based film maker Jane Mote of Beech to Beach, has created a short film which includes interviews with Ann Sutton, Oliver Hawkins and many others involved with Trail. This can be seen on the Gallery Trail website (www.arundelgallerytrail.co.uk) and will be shown during the 2018 Festival. The 2018 Arundel Gallery Trail is set to be another bumper year with a larger than normal guide, many names from years past taking part as well as new ones. It is no wonder that Arundel is now seen as the ‘Home of Art’ in Sussex and the South East or the “St Ives of the South”.

Arundel Festival 2018


Giles Penny returns this year with a sculpture called ‘Waving Man’ on the Causeway roundabout. This will be placed on a 12ft tall corten steel plinth kindly made for us by Booth Engineering. They are a dynamic, forward-thinking engineering company based in Ford, providing sheet metal, medium and heavier fabrication to clients across the UK and around the world.

Words and Music in Private Houses Monday 20 August, 6–9pm A Tribute to Indian Valour

“Everything is such as one would not see, even in a dream, one should regard it as a fairy tale. The heart cannot be satiated with seeing the sights, for there is no other place like this in the world” Subedar Major Sardar Bahadur Gugan (6th Jats), early 1915. Just over 100 years ago, the Royal Pavilion in Brighton was chosen as a military hospital for Indian soldiers wounded in the Great War. Jody East , curator of the Pavilion and expert in the period, will tell us about these remarkable years. After an interval for wine and Indian “short eats” award winning sitar player Jasdeep Singh Degun, together with a tabla player, will perform evening ragas as a tribute to the soldiers. www.jasdeepsinghdegun.com Peppering High Barn, Burpham. £20 to include wine and short eats.

Tuesday 21 August, 3:30–6.30pm The Making of an Arundel Garden Cathy Reid Jones qualified as a garden designer at The English Gardening School and has a busy practice in South West London (www.reallynicegardens.co.uk). We are blessed that she has come to live in Arundel, where she has completely re-designed her Maltravers Street garden. After visiting three or four Arundel gardens in the company of Tom Brown, the Head Gardener at Parham House, we shall meet for wine at Cathy’s house, enjoy her garden and hear how she planned its design, while Tom will reflect on Arundel gardens and offer advice on gardening on chalk. Meet at 57 Maltravers St, Arundel at 3:30pm. £15 to include wine.

Wednesday 22 August, 6pm A Family at War A military painter with sons at the front; a poet and suffragist; a best-selling journalist; a conscientious objector denounced by his parents; a countryman leaving his young family for the Somme. At the centenary of the Armistice Oliver Hawkins reflects on his own family’s engagements with the Great War. Humphreys, Greatham, the Meynell family home. £12 to include wine and canapés.

Thursday 23 August, 6pm Checkmate to Murder Retired barrister Peter Blood will walk us through the build-up to one of the 20th century’s most fascinating and controversial murder trials. He will then take us through the trial itself up to the point when the jury retired to consider its verdict. We too will retire to deliberate over a glass of wine before reconvening to hear Peter explain what actually happened and why this trial continues to fascinate true crime devotees.

TICKETS available from 10am on Saturday 7 July from Zimmer Stewart Gallery, 29 Tarrant St, Arundel BN18 9BQ Email: james@zimmerstewart.co.uk Tel: 01903 882063 10am–5pm, Tues–Sat WORDS AND MUSIC are most grateful to their kind sponsors for their support: Sylvie Allpress John Beckett Dr. John Godfrey Zimmer Stewart Gallery and an anonymous donor.

Story Factory:

a celebr atory wor kshop for children incor por ating creative writing, art, music and FUN! Sunday 26 August, 10am

With the Arundel Festival celebrating its 40th anniversary and the castle marking its 950th year, the theme for Story Factory’s imagination-inspiring workshop this August will be – HIP HIP HOORAY! Taking place at the Town Hall, this Bank Holiday Sunday session will focus on celebrations throughout history, and young creatives should prepare to party their way through a day filled with games, story making, art and music. Led by Story Factory’s resident practitioners, occasions from weddings to wakes and birthdays to Bingo wins will be the key ingredients of inventive fun and activity. Beginning life almost four years ago as a one-off workshop to gauge interest in storytelling through different mediums, Story Factory has grown into regular well-attended workshops that allow children to explore their imaginations, giving their creativity a free rein. While guided, workshops are not prescriptive, enabling a broad age range of participants (children 6-13 years) to work happily alongside each other. Past guests include authors, publishers, illustrators, story massage practitioners, and newspaper editors, all of whom have loved being part of such inventiveness and originality. Price: £30 per child (10am – 4pm). Please bring a packed lunch, your pencil case and your imagination! A limited number of partially-funded and free places are available to low income families on a first come first served basis. Please get in touch for details. The workshop will take place on Sunday 26 August, 10am-4pm. For further details see www.facebook.com/StoryFactoryChichester Booking: katy@chichestercopywriter or call 01243 533421.

COMMEMORATE. EDUCATE. HEAL

In this year, the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War, Arundel is taking part in the “There But Not There” national commemorative project.

93 transparent silhouettes of fallen WW1 soldiers have taken their position on the pews of Arundel Cathedral and nearby St Nicholas Church. Each silhouette is accompanied by a name from Arundel’s Roll of Honour. The charitable project has three simple but significant aims: To Commemorate the Fallen through highlighting the sacrifices made. The 2018 Armistice Project, There But Not There, will be the Centenary Commemoration for the end of the First World War. To Educate all generations, particularly today’s younger generation, born nearly 100 years after the outbreak of WW1, to understand what led to the slaughter of 888,246 British and Commonwealth men. To help Heal those suffering from the hidden wounds of post-traumatic stress disorder and other lasting legacies of combat, by raising funds for our beneficiary charities. The installation can be visited between now and Armistice Day Sunday, 11 November. A Nationwide Installation for the Fallen 24

Arundel Festival Fundraising The Festival is funded in a number of ways and I would like to take this opportunity to thank all that donate so generously. Fundraising events make an essential contribution, such as our annual fundraising party. This year it was a unanimous decision to bring back the Big Party Marquee, on the stunning Lower Lawns of the Castle. A big thank you to the organising team Andy Batty, Cathy Perry, Andrew Lark, Tracey Shaw, Tent’n’Events for the Marquee and Sims Williams Estate Agents for the welcome drink. The title sponsorship for the fundraiser came from Jennings Financial Planning, situated in the High Street, to whom we are immensely grateful.

I would also like to thank Arundel Town Council for the annual grant we receive and all of the traders who have supported the Festival brochure by placing an advertisement or sponsoring an event. The Festival only really happens because of the huge amount of voluntary time that so many people so kindly give. Thank you.

Michael Tu Festival Chairman  

In addition, the Royal Wedding gave another excuse to party this year. Stacey and Jonathan Bunn kindly hosted a day to rival the goingson in Windsor and they raised over £3,000 for the Festival, an incredible amount of money. Thank you to Stacey and her team Angela Gadd, Kirsten Pottinger, Fiona Watson, Suzi Black and my wife, Poppy Tu.
