Thanks to our Organisers
Getting the Shoreham Summer Festival off the ground has taken months of organising and adapting to finally get us to the point where we can celebrate our amazing town and the different communities within it. This is the first Summer festival for Shoreham-by-Sea and we hope it to be the first of many. It has taken many hand and many emails to create this event and we thank everyone that contributed. Below are a list of the main organisers.
Adur District Council
Adur District Council is delighted to support Shoreham Traders Association in their exciting plans for a Shoreham Summer Festival through the “Welcome Back” funding. The Welcome Back fund is for use in increasing the number of new visitors to our town centres across Adur and in providing a safe and attractive reintroduction for our local communities.
Shoreham Summer Festival, on the 14th August, will run alongside the award winning Shoreham Farmers market and will include live music, performances, local community groups, as well as all your favourite traders. We hope the event will be a huge success and add even more vibrancy to an already thriving town. We look forward to welcoming you.
