Welcome to the 17th Forest Row Festival 2017!

This is a wonderful event which reflects the delicious richness of our community. And there is a lot of tasty stuff for you to get your teeth into this year. In 2016, thanks to the generosity of the companies and individuals, the festival on the Green was FREE! And it is again for 2017! If you would like to help support this worthy cause, find out how to do that here.

This year we will once again assemble a tremendous array of talent. As well as the music on The Green, which forms the focus for the weekend, there will be great music, art, cinema, dance, poetry, storytelling and many more things to keep you entertained. And there are plenty of opportunities for everyone to get involved too. The bike ride is open to all comers, and you can try your hand at crafts, yoga or waltzing at the Tea Dance.


Meet old friends. Make new ones. Forest Row’s heart is pounding strongly the weekend of the 22-24 September 2017. See you there, and let the fun begin!


If you would like to get involved, be it as a stall-holder, fund-raiser, or event host, or if you just want more information on the festival, please get in touch.


The Forest Row Song

Every year we release a Forest Row Song to raise funds for the festival. Watch this space for the 2016 song.

The 2015 song…

Forest Row Song 2015

Please give generously to show your appreciation for the efforts of our songsmiths.

And from 2014…
