Concert Series: Live in the Garden at the White Horse Graffham

Concert Series: Live in the Garden at the White Horse Graffham


3.30pm - 6.00pm

Proud to announce our very first 'Live in the Garden' Concert Series at The White Horse Graffham

Under a new ownership, The White Horse in Graffham is betting on becoming a hub for music and arts in the middle of the West Sussex countryside. On top of their restaurant and rooms offerings, this country retreat has partnered with local artist Chris Simmons to develop a series of live concerts at this historic location. 

Each Sunday afternoon, a different and highly talented artist will take the stage at The White Horse Graffham to delight its visitors. The lineup, carefully curated by Simmons, will be varied and contemporary, looking to surprise and engage with a varied audience from all ages and styles where quality will be the common denominator.

'Live in The Garden', unlike other music festivals in the area such as Petfringe, and Petworth Festival -that only happen once a year - is looking to consolidate itself as an important stage where local artist can jumpstart and consolidate their careers while attracting international talent to the area. 

"I was introduced to this part of the world (Petworth & Graffham) late last year and was completely consumed by it. The space, the peace and quiet and the friendly nature of the people here. The more I delved into the music side of things, however, the more I noticed that there maybe wasn't as many shows/events in the area as I would have expected. The opportunity to curate a weekly Sunday afternoon, and bring in all my musical friends from around the world, to a stunning venue with the majesty of the South Downs as a backdrop was too hard to turn down. I can guarantee that you will enjoy the top class musicians on display, every single Sunday afternoon at The White Horse in Graffham." - Chris Simmons

'Live in The Garden' is scheduled to last at least until the end of Summer and potentially become an all year long event. The restaurant is set to host shows inside whenever the weather threatens the use of the garden, but one thing is for sure: There will be music every Sunday at The White Horse Graffham.
