The Big Countdown

With only a few days left to go to the start of the festival, tickets are selling well and some events are already sold out – please check the programme pages – see sidebar right – before you phone to book.

There have been some changes to the programme too – I’ve been ‘tweeting’ all the updates, but if you aren’t a Twitterer, you might like to visit the programme pages to ensure that the event you plan to attend is in the same place and the same time.

One particular one to note is the ‘Poetry and Pints’ event on Thursday 1st October is now at the Robin Hood, not the Star, due to a change of management at the original venue.

I’ll also take the opportunity to remind you about the three exhibitions and events that run throughout the Festival.

The Arthur Conan Doyle and Read ON exhibitions are located in the Meridian Centre, Calligraphy and Art over Water exhibitions are at Nineveh in The Pallant (the street next to Waitrose), and Childrens’s Colouring Competition and Shop Window Library Quiz are at Bookends in High Street Emsworth.

The very first event will be the Grand Opening and Prize Giving Ceremony at the Arts Centre (The Spring) in East Street, starting at 6pm.

Come here every day during the Festival to find out what is on next and reports on what you missed!

Sonnets and masque

HLF are delighted to announce that The Milton Consort will appear at Havant Arts Centre on Monday, 28 September.

Celebrating the 400th anniversary of their publication, The Milton Consort perform forty of Shakespeare’s finest sonnets interspersed with beautiful masque music played on Elizabethan lute and flutes.

The three members of The Milton Consort met and regularly perform at Shakespeare’s Globe. Don’t miss this wonderful event!
