HORSHAM TOWN CENTRE FESTIVAL 2007
Thursday 25 to Saturday 27 October
10am to 9pm
Horsham Town Centre
Enjoy a fantastic range of organised activities
including live music, street theatre, a traditional
turn-of-the-century fun fair, unique workshops as well
as other great things for people of all ages to enjoy.
As a special event, on Friday 26 October from 7pm,
band Tongues of Fire - will perform, taking the
form of a precession allowing crowds to follow them
from the Carfax to The Forum. The band can be
described as a riot of reeds, brass and percussion
inspired by sounds of church and chapel, of village,
street, circus and gypsy bands, the jazz marches of
Albert Ayler and the cosmic carnival of Sun Ra.
The Forum at 8pm, Feeding the Fish will amaze
crowds with a high-energy stage-show where juggling
and movement are performed in partial light with
illuminated clubs and balls, changing brightness and
strobing, emitting a spectrum of colours in perfect
synchronization to a dramatic soundtrack. A
mesmerising spectacle of choreographed colour which is
both intriguing and captivating.
Some of the most talented street theatre performers in
business will be in town on Saturday 27 October.
Emile Epstein will be performing Fire Juggling,
Breathing, Fire Poi and Fire Staff. Pesky
four-legged bugs, ladies gossiping over a wall, a
man with a noisy briefcase and amazing artist -
John Hicks are all to feature and guaranteed to
surprise you should you stumble across them!
music this year is an eclectic mix including many new
bands including Tuxedo Funktion - 9-piece
funk/disco covers band, The Mike O'Mara Gypsy
Project with gypsy jazz, up-beat Eastern-European
and Folk, plus Rachel Hawker and the Remedies
also plays with bundles of attitude.
The fun of the fair is back, lighting up the town with
exciting rides - all at low prices. The
turn-of-the-century style fair provides a great
atmosphere throughout the town, featuring a Carousel,
Chair-o-Planes, Haunted Castle, Games and Sides Stools
plus the Ferris Wheel allowing spectacular views
across Horsham, both day and night.
As usual, the majority of entertainment will be
absolutely FREE. Don't miss out!
