We were delighted to welcome a superlative line-up of Musical Acts to the inaugural Curious Arts Festival; a bill curated by Maz Tappuni from Communion, the label founded by Ben Lovett (Mumford & Sons), Kevin Jones (Bear's Den) and acclaimed producer Ian Grimble.

Kicking off the Friday night was Eaves and Bear's Den, followed by headline act Johnny Flynn & The Sussex Wit.

Saturday started with brilliant sets by Luke Sital-Singh and Mercury nominee Ed Harcourt with Joan As Police Woman bringing the evening to a close with a characteristically wonderful headline performance.

If that wasn't enough, the curtain to the final night of Curious Arts was brought down by the sensationally gifted Rae Morris , who took the stage ahead of the mesmerising Nick Mulvey.
