This year Shoreham Port will be a headline sponsor of the Adur Festival. The festival is in its 28th year, and its third year at The Ropetackle Arts Centre. The festival has rapidly grown in popularity, attracting many visitors from the local area and further afield. The Adur Festival is a celebration of arts and community, literature, music, comedy and theatre.

Events, workshops and activities will be happening across the South Coast catering for all ages. The Ropetackle Trust organises and programmes a district wide street party to celebrate the festival with national and international artists performing alongside local community groups.

The Adur Festival is a not-for-profit, open access event that celebrates Adur’s community and identity. These values coincide perfectly with Shoreham Port’s goals as a Trust Port and the team at Shoreham were delighted to be able to support the festival as a main sponsor.

Adur Festival Co-ordinator, Mella Faye-Punchard commented “We’re delighted to be receiving support from Shoreham Port as our headline sponsor. Adur Festival is first and foremost a community event, and so it’s an excellent fit for us to work with a local trust that provides such an important service in the area.

Mella continued “The festival is not run for profit, and so we’re very thankful to be receiving the backing to make it happen. We wouldn’t be able to organise events such as the district-wide street parties on June 13th without such generous support. The theme this year is ‘Food of Love’, and with over 50 events registered there is something for everyone, so why not get involved and try a taste of something new?”

Rodney Lunn, Chief Executive at Shoreham Port added “It is fantastic to see the Adur Festival go from strength to strength each year. We actively seek to support events like the Adur Festival which are inclusive, community based and creative. I would like to wish everyone involved in the festival the best of luck for another successful event this year.”
