Sep 9 @ 10:00 am – 6:00 pm

Summer of Sound at Wakehurst

This summer Wakehurst will be brought alive by a symphony of sounds in their major new programme Summer of Sound. As you weave your way through Wakehurst’s wild landscape, you’ll discover six playful, innovative installations from award-winning artists, each offering moments to reconnect and restore your relationship with nature. Highlights include the UK premiere of mobile phone-activated robotic woodpeckers from Marco Barotti, giant wooden megaphones from Estonian artist Birgit Õigus, and two water-based sound installations from 2020 Ivor Novello Award for Sound Art winner Kathy Hinde. Championing the rich diversity of Wakehurst’s multiple habitats, the artworks offer an incredible range of sonic encounters from catching whispers of the forest, to uncovering voices from deep underwater.

In Summer of Sound: After Hours, Wakehurst opens to the public for four nights, offering a rare opportunity to experience the gardens and installations at sundown. Complete with captivating live performances, open-air cooking, and botanical cocktails, Summer of Sound: After Hours forms the perfect midsummer date or night out with friends. Throughout the summer, there will also be a series of interactive workshops for adults and children to enjoy from learning how to talk to birds, and writing Wakehurst-inspired songs, to Deep Listening Walks led by participating artist Kathy Hinde.

Tickets are on sale now from www.kew.org/wakehurst/whats-on/summer-of-sound . Summer of Sound runs from 9 July – 12 September 2021, 10am – 6pm, included in day ticket price (£14.50 adults, £7.25 17-25yrs; children free). Summer of Sound: After Hours runs from 12 – 15 August, £15.

Grand Costume Sale @ Henfield Hall
Sep 18 @ 10:00 am – 1:00 pm
Grand Costume Sale @ Henfield Hall | England | United Kingdom

Grand Henfield Theatre Company Costume Sale 

Now that we see the prospect of going out to parties again (remember those?) here comes a great opportunity to pick up some amazing costumes. Henfield Theatre Company (HTC) will be holding a costume sale in The Henfield Hall, 10am-1pm on Saturday 18 September. 

In November 2020, HTC moved their costume wardrobe to smaller premises and did a cull of their stock. The smaller sized costumes were donated to St Peter’s School, some went to charity and some to the University of Brighton Fashion department. However, they saved the best for the Costume sale! There will be items from pantos, historical dramas and more recent 40s, 50s, 60s and 70s wear. Refreshments will be available too. 

The rationalisation of HTC’s costume store does not mean that there will be any less activity on the Henfield stage – far from it. Right now, the company is in rehearsal for The Government Inspector, an intriguing comedy of errors, which runs for four performances from 14 – 16 October (including a Saturday matinée). After that we can look forward to more zany fun in Treasure Island, the Panto, which goes on stage in mid-January 2022. For more information www.henfieldtheatrecompany.com.

Great Big Green Week – ‘Give Your Stuff Away Day’ @ Henfield Village
Sep 19 @ 10:00 am – 3:00 pm

The Great Big Green Week 

SH2030 will be organising a few events to be part of the national Great Big Green Week, 18th-26th September. 

‘Give Your Stuff Away Day’ Sunday 19th September 10-3pm. Join in by putting out things you no longer want neatly outside your house so others can take them. Then wander round the village to see what else has been put out. Make sure you put things left over at the end back inside. It will not go ahead if the weather is wet. 

Henfield Wellness Event @ Henfield Haven
Sep 19 @ 11:00 am – 4:00 pm
Henfield Wellness Event @ Henfield Haven | England | United Kingdom

We’ve got a host of fabulous local wellness experts lined up to deliver a series of classes, treatments and talks at Henfield’s first Wellness Event which will take place on Sunday 19th September 2021 at the Henfield Haven from 11am to 4pm. 

Looking after our own wellbeing is essential, something that we are all more aware of following the events of the past 18 months. But sometimes it’s difficult to know where to start. By bringing some of our local wellness businesses together at the Henfield Haven, visitors will be able to talk to the different practitioners to find out what they offer and sample the different range of therapies and fitness classes on offer in our village. Perhaps you are looking for a new healthy routine, maybe you have a particular health goal in mind, or perhaps you are just curious – this event will help you find out more and decide what’s right for you!

Henfield is blessed with a wealth of different wellness experts many of whom will be showcasing on the day. People will be able to experience taster treatment sessions for therapies such as massage, osteopathy, and meditation, as well as short 30 minute fitness classes such as Pilates, yoga and personal training. Talks will include subjects such as aromatherapy, acupuncture, the power of the mind and chronic pain. There will also be freshly cold pressed juices and goodness bowls available.

The idea for the Henfield Wellness Event came from a group of local businesswomen (many of whom work in the wellness industry), who set up a Women’s Networking Group during 2019. They chose the Henfield Haven as it is the perfect village venue – peaceful and relaxing with lots of individual rooms, a big hall and a beautiful, tranquil garden. 

Entry to the Henfield Wellness Event will be a £2 donation to The Haven and the first 100 people to arrive will receive a free goodie bag! The taster fitness classes will be a £7.50 for 30 minutes and the taster therapies will be a £10 for a 20 minute session. The organisers of the Wellness Event are proud to be donating half of the proceeds made on the day to this hugely valuable village asset.

If you would like to register your interest in the day or book a slot to take part in a fitness class or therapy session, please check out www.henfieldevents.com. Make sure you wear appropriate clothing on the day if you would like to take part in a fitness class.

We look forward to giving you a warm welcome on Sunday 19th September!
