Many of the events are free of charge, and some have a small admission fee.
Tuesday the 17th of June
If you revel in exploring the luscious countryside and historical features of West Sussex, then you should take advantage of the Festival of Chichester’s many walking tours. On Tuesday morning, at 11am, you can take part in a walking tour of the historical, Cathedral city of Chichester. Meet outside the library, in Tower Street, for more information. Similarly, history enthusiasts will appreciate the opportunity to take a walking tour that explores Chichester’s part in past historical conflicts. The ‘Time of Conflict’ tour takes place at 6pm, and departs from the cathedral bell tower on West Street.
Wednesday the 18th of June
Theatre and literature aficionados can catch Charles Dickens’s A Tale of Two Cities at 7.30pm at the New Park Centre on Wednesday evening. The classic tale depicts London and Paris before and during the French revolution, and the novel has sold over 200 million copies, ranking it among the most famous works in the history of literary fiction.
