Young Person’s Reps
Horsham Arts Open Studios
HAOS is an informal group of artists, working in a wide variety of different disciplines and mediums, all living or working in the Horsham District. HAOS meet up monthly to support each other and create opportunities to promote and sell our artwork. They have two main events each year; the HAOS Art Trail and the HAOS Contemporary Art Fair.
Horsham Folk Club
Horsham Folk Club was formed in 1958. The club stages regular gigs and open-mic sessions at The Normandy Centre in Denne Road. Events feature a wide range of traditional, self-penned and modern songs, with a strong tradition of good floor singers, top-named guests and regular dance nights.
Horsham Music Circle
Horsham Music Circle presents an annual series of professional concerts. These feature chamber music, solo recitalists and special programmes in a lighter vein including jazz, and have included appearances by Benjamin Grosvenor, Dame Evelyn Glennie, Tasmin Little, Julian Lloyd Webber, the David Rees-Williams Trio and improvisor Harry the Piano.
