We are working on an Events Strategy which will cover the whole Chichester District. The idea is to provide a year round programme of events which meets your needs as a resident, business or visitor. We want to make sure these events entertain, educate and inspire everyone who loves Chichester District.

We would like to hear from you to learn what sort of events you already attend and what you would like to see in your area and across the district in the future. Let us know your views by clicking the link to the questionnaire on this page.

The deadline for responses is Monday 29 July 2019.

If you have general questions about events and you can't find the answer on this page please get in touch.

We are happy to send paper copies of the questionnaire to people who need one, so if you or someone you know needs a paper copy of the survey please let us know.

Frequently asked questions

What is an Events Strategy?

We'd like to create a structure which will help us set out what sort of events will bring out the best of Chichester District. We want to make sure everyone has an opportunity to have their say on the type of events they would like to see.

That's why we need your views in this consultation - your thoughts and ideas will help us create an Events Strategy which will work for the whole district and everyone who lives, works and visits here.

What will the Events Strategy cover?

The Events Strategy will aim to set both short- and long-term goals for the whole of the Chichester District to create a year round programme of events which meets the needs of our communities.

Can I have a paper questionnaire?

Of course - we are always happy to provide paper questionnaires to people who can't use the website for any reason. All you need to do is get in touch and we will send one out to you, whether it's for yourself or for a friend or relative.

How do I find out about events across the district?

There are a few ways you can stay up to date on events across the district: you can check the 'What's On?' section of initiatives magazine, we regularly post about local events on social media.

We also have information about events on our website:
