The aim

is to raise the profile of culture and heritage within the Horsham district, with a focused programme of events across 2019 which will be supported by residents and visitors. We want there to be a cultural legacy left for the district which can be enjoyed by residents and visitors, long after 2019.

The Year

of Culture is being sponsored by Horsham District Council, working in partnership with advisors comprising arts patrons, existing festival organisers and representatives from education, local businesses and the community.

We want

to involve the community as much as possible, and hope that by the end of 2019, every resident would have had a chance to be a part of the Year of Culture.

Grants

To enable and organisations to go further and achieve more we will be providing grants – under £1,000, £1,000-£5,000 and over £5,000 – to support your ideas and, hopefully, make them possible.
