Culture Spark Chichester 2022 is launching with three exciting events:

  • 30 March, Medmerry Hill, Selsey
  • 31 March, Cowdary Ruins, Midhurst

If you would like to get involved and help at any of the above evening events please email

Culture Spark aims to give everyone - including every child in the district - the chance to participate in an amazing cultural experience, and it also celebrates multiple milestones of some of its cultural organisations.

Celebrations will be taking place to recognise 60 years of Chichester Festival Theatre; 40 years of Pallant House Gallery; 30 years of Chichester Cinema at New Park's International Film Festival; 10 years of The Novium Museum and the Festival of Chichester; and even more impressively, 200 years of the Canal Trust! All of the organisations will be holding their own exciting events as part of the season to mark this special year.

Inspired by the anniversaries, Culture Spark will also bring together a wide variety of community groups, individuals, the university, colleges and schools from across the district to celebrate Chichester's rich cultural offering.
