What to watch in Horsham this Summer

Summer solstice officially starts on 21st June this year, bringing with it a whole host of events. Horsham will be a bustle of music and plays from well-known shows at the Capitol to local bands playing in our well-loved pubs. Plan out your Summer with our handy guide; we’ve selected the best bits!

Sparks in the Park is back

Note down 10th July in your diary because Sparks in the Park is back for 2016! This year is a little different as it marks the 400th anniversary of William Shakespeare’s death. Horsham District Council have decided to pay tribute to the bard as well as hold a day full of festivities.

Enjoy Benson’s Funfair, Stay Safe Young Drive, an abundance of local musicians and more with all the family. Keep an eye out on the Visit Horsham page for more information nearer the time.


Samantha Barks visits The Capitol

She rose to fame on the BBC talent show “I’d Do Anything” before appearing in the West End production of Les Miserables. Now she’s gracing The Capitol’s stage on 18th June to perform her new album to us Horsham fans!

If visiting the theatre for a play is more your style we’ve got just the thing. Telling the story of 19th-century France, the Surrey Youth Music Theatre will appear at The Capitol with their production of Les Miserables. Telling a tale of love and sacrifice, it’s worth a watch!

See both of these shows on the What’s On page of The Capitol’s website.


The Railway Children

A truly unforgettable tale of adventure and friendship, join The Railway Children at Gatton Manor’s Open Air theatre on 19th June. The Chapterhouse Theatre Company will be taking to the stage from 5.30pm to tell the tale of how three children explore Yorkshire, looking to discover the reason for their father’s quick disappearance.


Watch movies by moonlight

How does a three-course dinner laid before you on a Summers evening with one of your favourite films playing across the silver screen sound? Luxurious, right? Spend your evening exactly like this at South Lodge Hotel, with a special deal of £50 per person or only £165 per room if you want to make a romantic night of it. Call to book on 01403 891711.
