Cuckfield Music Festival brings to Mid-Sussex a programme as rich in variety as it is in the talent of the performers.

Cuckfield Music Festival is a not-for-profit organisation which exists to bring an annual programme of musical events to the area, working with professional, semi-professional and amateur musicians, and schools and colleges, to encourage people of all ages to engage with and perform live music.

We are in the process of becoming a Charitable Incorporated Organisation in time for the 2023 season.

The Festival is now in its fourth year and the 2023 season will feature a wide range of genres to appeal to a wide audience.

In 2022  the Cuckfield Music Festival took our audience on a musical journey from the ‘big’ sound of Harveys Symphonic Brass Ensemble to the sacred and secular singing from The Kingfisher Chorale.

En route we passed percussionists, internationally renowned jazz musicians, voice and instrumental soloists and orchestral works from the Burgess Hill Symphony Orchestra as well as young musicians from schools and colleges. That’s not forgetting an Open mic session and the Band of Dads.
Cuckfield Music Festival aims to support and encourage young musicians in particular and this year brought an exceptionally talented offering.
