MADhurst programme is out with a ‘selfie’ challenge


Programmes for MADhurst 2016 are about to drop through letterboxes across the town with innovative new events as well as a host of favourites from past festivals.

And brand new to MADhurst is the programme competition inviting people to take a selfie with their MADhurst programme in the weirdest or most wonderful place you can find.

It should then be tweeted including @madhurst and #MADhurst 2016 for a chance to win a bottle of wine and some chocolates.

“Sponsored by Southdown Property Solutions, the programme competition is a fantastic opportunity for you to show what you love about Midhurst,” said MADhurst chairman John Barrett.

“Perhaps you have a favourite view across the Downs or maybe you’d like to share a beautiful sunset over Cowdray? Your selfie could even capture a local arts or drama event in the background. Whatever you choose, make it as eye catching as possible!”

Christian Budd, partner with Southdown Property Solutions, independent estate agents and property consultants, said: “Cited as a reason to move to Midhurst, MADhurst was developed to bring together the community and embrace the multitude of arts and drama groups that are enjoyed by many in the area. Southdown Property Solutions are delighted to be sponsoring the MADhurst programme competition.”

Entries must be received by Saturday, August 27, and the winner will be announced at the Grand Finale Day on Monday, August 29, where the prize will be awarded.
