Faraway Festival - Wiston Estate - 16-17 July 2021

This event will be released at Wiston Estate on the 16th-17th July 2021 and will showcase open air cinema, comedy and grassroots live music. This is a micro-festival making it personalised and a community based event, but also importantly it is appropriate considering the times. After the year we've had, people are yearning to enjoy live events once again! 

Their opening night on the 16th July is the PoshFlix night consisting of an open air cinema screening of the Great Gatsby with a jazz band before to give that 1920s feel! Bottomless Pimm's and Prosecco options will be available, while a range of local food vendors will be dishing up delicious treats from wood fired pizzas, burgers, game meats and loaded fires to vegan options! Fancy dress is encouraged! The 17th July will be our day festival which will host live music and comedy throughout the day and into the night. We have a range of magnificent acts from an energetic 10 piece brass band (Spanky's Love Ensemble) to an electric light-up string duo (Halo Strings) transforming Ibiza club anthems, and many more acts - indie rock, fold rock, funk bands, 90s/00s classics - they'll be something for everyone throughout the day! On the comedy front, we have teamed up with Dinesh Nathan ('one to watch' - Fringe Review), Sean McLoughlin (best comedian you haven't heard of - Time Out - Ricky Gervais support act), Stephen Grant (Komedia headliner) all MC'ed by the great Dave Fensome (who leads the late-night comedy at Brighton Fringe). 

These are day events with camping, so there are a range of different ticket options depending on which event you choose:

No-frills camping is available on Friday and Saturday night or for the whole weekend. Water points are available around the site but we would recommend bringing the festival classic baby wipes.

Parking is available on site with a drop off location for those arriving by taxi. Public transport is not possible at our event due to its location. The entrance to the event is on the A283 close to Steyning and will be heavily signposted.

Dusk & Duchy is a Covid-19 entertainment start-up straight out of Brighton, it has taken them an enormous amount of work over the last year to get to this point. We are all very excited to see you there. So come and join us for the first Faraway Festival of its kind and together we can make it bigger and better year on year! Thanks for stopping by and we hope to boogie once again this Summer! Tickets available at www.duskduchyevents.com and follow them on Facebook at Faraway Festival.
