Tips from locals
I'd definitely recommend a visit to Chichester's famous theatre, one of the best provincial theatres in the country - they are back up and running!
Chichester Festival Theatre was founded by a local ophthalmic optician and former city mayor, Leslie Evershed-Martin, following an idea he had whilst watching a television programme in 1959 about the Stratford Festival Theatre in Stratford, Ontario in Canada. His vision was for a seasonal festival…
Set in the beautiful surroundings of Oaklands Park, CFT is one of the UK's flagship regional theatres known for it's annual summer festival. A great opportunity to see shows before they move to the West End.
Renowned theatre with outstanding productions and well known names. Only 2/3 min walk.
