Since 2006, St Leonards Festival has presented free, high-quality, outdoor performing arts, music, carnival and parade.
How we began...
St Leonards-on-Sea’s quirky atmosphere, attractive architecture and seaside location have attracted a wealth of creative talent and entrepreneurial activity in recent years leading to property and business investment, some local regeneration, and a degree of gentrification. However, St Leonards remains home to many economically deprived residents. St Leonards Festival is designed to be inclusive for all residents. In 2010 The Community Forum changed to St Leonards Town Team, which ceased to exist in 2014. A St Leonards Festival Committee was set up in 2018.
Diveristy has always been at the heart of the festival. Each year we've been running we have aimed to have 51% of the festival reflect diversity in all it's forms.
St Leonards Festival is committed to being sustainable festival. Each year we try and do more in order to reach our targets.
