Help The Spring celebrate Havant in free outdoor event

The Spring Arts and Heritage Centre is looking for local performers, community groups and food vendors to take part in Havant at Home, a free outdoor event celebrating Havant Borough and the reasons we all love to call it home!

Funding from the Big Lottery Fund’s Celebrate programme is helping The Spring work with the Havant community to hold this free event taking place in Havant Park, 12.00pm – 5.00pm on Saturday 29 July.

Havant at Home will include a live circus act, a community stage with performers from across the borough, food and drink, community stalls, family activities and more. The event aims to showcase the best that Havant and the surrounding region has to offer, from the finest artistic talents and local produce, to the local groups and organisations working to support our communities.

The Spring are looking for participants to join them on the day, including:

  • Local musicians, dancers or other live performers to perform on the community stage
  • Community groups to showcase who they are and what they do
  • Locally-based food and drinks vendors

If you are an individual, community group, local organisation or charity based in Havant Borough and you’d like to take part in Havant at Home, please contact Jemma Corbin, Creative Producer at The Spring, on jemmac@thespring.co.uk

The Spring has received funding to help run this event from Celebrate, a new £5m grant programme that launched in July 2016 from the Big Lottery Fund for communities across the UK to celebrate what makes their local neighbourhood great.

As well as funding from the Big Lottery Fund, Havant at Home is also supported by Arts Council England, The D’Oyly Carte Trust, Hampshire County Council and Havant Borough Council.
