St Leonards Festival

An annual arts and community festival in St Leonards on Sea

St Leonards Festival is a vibrant community festival celebrating diversity and inclusivity for all through arts, music, entertainment and sometimes food, bringing everyone together in Warrior Square Gardens to show off local talent and to support local businesses.

The original festival concept was developed by 18 Hours in conjunction with the Central St Leonards Community Forum, for a weekend of local home grown talent performing alongside international artists.

The event was produced by 18 Hours in 2006-2009, 2014-2015 and 2018-2023.
Please note 18 Hours did not produce St Leonards Festival in 2010-2013 as Gensing and Central St Leonards Community Forum took it on. The same goes for years 2016-2017 with 111 Collective.

Great festival, congratulations to the whole team. Brilliantly conceived and executed.
