Have your say

It’s ten days of solid entertainment and it starts tomorrow (Saturday, August 22) with live music and a picnic in Woolbeding Park at 5pm.

Gather your family and friends, pack up a picnic and sit back and listen to the music of the South Downs Ukelele Orchestra, Grace Spooner and Levi.

There will also be a chance to see Mid Life Crisis, the six strong band which includes Midhurst’s GP Alex MacCallum who will be swopping his stethoscope for a saxophone and singing back up vocals.

Local brewery Langham’s will be on the bar.

At 7pm the UK’s only seniors rock chorus (average age over 70 years) is at the Methodist Church. The Wonderyears Rock Choir beat 60,000 other acts when they reached the quarter finals of the 2012 Britain’s Got Talent contest.

There is a pre-concert dinner at Picasso’s Restaurant followed by a classical performance from Les Apaches in the parish church.

And the fun goes on throughout the week. Check out MADhurst for a full programme of what’s on offer.
