Summer festival puts Reigate on cultural map

This summer, Reigate town centre will be awash with music, dance, drama, film, comedy, literature, art, lightshows and historic displays as the town’s thriving arts scene comes together for the first ever Reigate Summer Festival. The Festival will take place over the Father’s Day weekend of June 14-16.

Focused on two main stages – in Tunnel Road and Reigate Methodist Church – Reigate Summer Festival will also embrace many local venues, including Pilgrim Brewery, Reigate Library, Everyman Cinema, Reigate Community Centre, Waterstones Booksellers and most of the town’s pubs, all of which will be putting on their own programmes. Most events will be free to attend.

The Festival is expected to attract visitors to Reigate, increasing footfall to the High Street, which will bring big benefits to local businesses. With an ambition to grow to the scale of the Christmas Fair and put Reigate on the map as one of the country’s valued cultural centres, Reigate Summer Festival welcomes all-comers and is keen to hear from any local arts groups that would like to take part, whether this year or in future.

The 2024 programme begins on Friday evening and runs through to Sunday lunch time, offering something for everyone. The Festival website will launch this week, featuring a schedule of events to help visitors plan their whole weekend of entertainment.
