Arundel Festival Starts Saturday

Arundel Sussex England




It’s not only the castle dominating the skyline that makes Arundel so special. 










Nor is it the cathedral that towers majestically over houses built by Napoleonic prisoners of war. 












Or the river that meanders through.
 




It’s not the many gorgeous shops, restaurants or pubs.



 Or the walks that lead you mile after mile into places with the most spectacular of views.









Found this lovely old book in a junk shop


Where you can sit on hilltops far from the madding crowd and just catch your breath.









It isn’t the history that dates back to Roman times or the streets that feel like a film set. 

Or the locals, many of whom are artistic, musical or just nicely eccentric.



Notice the drummers Westie dog to the left.....A party in the Old Jailhouse High Street




It’s not the Festival alone with it's10 dizzy days of art, music and fun. 










Or the serene setting for boating, wildlife and picnics that is Swanbourne Lake. 









It isn’t only the Wildfowl Trust, Arundel Museum, swimming lido,

 ghost and walking tours and music in the old jailhouse.







It’s that whole package and so much more besides.

Arundel is unique. For more about the town, its people,

for all the listings




Abba on the Hill is one of our favourite events





and of course, a huge part of the festival is the art trail.

Now in its 30th year.

I exhibited on the very first.
My name was Borley in those days.

And I actually exhibited photography.
Can't paint for toffee.


It was the first ever walking around art trail in the world.

It's a brilliant chance to find beautiful artworks in a myriad of mediums.
Have a snoop into some pretty magnificent homes.
And explore the town at the same time.




Check out this video, on how it all started.

We won't be exhibiting this year.

Because my lovely son Jay and his family are coming for the festival.
All the way from California, where he is a menswear designer.

By the way, he studied for his menswear degree locally.
Northbrook College was the second college in Europe to run the course.
pack those suitcases Jay and Krista




They can't wait.

Nor can we.
We want to spend as much time with them as possible.


Have a great day
