Horsham District Council’s Cabinet Member for Culture and Leisure said:

“Our launch in January marks the start of hundreds of events taking place across the District during 2019 to celebrate culture in all its forms. We want to include as many people as possible in this exciting project, so the launch is a perfect chance for residents to find out more and discover what events they can take part in, or go to. Plus, it’s a unique, fun afternoon out, guaranteed to brighten up January. Come along and join us!”
