We are delighted to announce that Curious Arts Festival will be back in 2015 from 17-19 July and that Early Bird Tickets are now on sale. Taking place again in the magical grounds of Pylewell Park, visitors should expect a uniquely immersive festival experience where you will be amused, intrigued, entertained and enlightened by a glittering array of writers, artists and musicians.
For the Bookish, expect a series of dazzling tented events with some of Britain’s most remarkable contemporary writers. The line-up is still a bit secret squirrel but we are thrilled to announce that we will be joined by David Nicholls (author of Us and One Day), Jojo Moyes (author of The One Plus One) and bestselling author of Before I Go to Sleep, SJ Watson.
For Music Lovers, there will be live evening performances from a range of devastatingly talented acts including John Illsley of Dire Straits.
For Garden Lovers, enjoy this rare opportunity to explore the beautiful, hidden gardens of Pylewell Park. You might decide to take a stroll round the ornamental lake or head to the water’s edge and enjoy the extraordinarily beautiful views overlooking the Solent.
For Families, be intrigued by a superb range of Family Friendly activities.
For Film-Buffs, we’ll be screening a selection of fantastic contemporary and classic movies.
Pylewell Park is home to the Hon David and Melanie Roper-Curzon and for three days in July will provide the breathtaking setting for the Curious Arts Festival. Positioned on the south coast in the New Forest with a large agricultural and sporting estate, the house sits surrounded by traditionally laid out parkland with unrivalled panoramic views over the Solent along the South coast.
