AFTER ten days of entertainment and celebration, the chairman of the Arundel Festival hailed the event as the best yet.

More than 60,000 people visited the triumphant festival to experience an array of drama, music and art.

Ash Kent, Arundel Festival chairman, said: “Arundel has been buzzing all over the town with ten days of amazing music, stunning art, brilliant drama, and a multitude of other forms of entertainment and events. We are very lucky to have so many involved in the creation, attractions, charities, clubs, groups, pubs, shops, societies and residents. At times it felt like every door was open, yet there was something different behind every one to either entertain you or to inspire you.”
