The ethos of the festival is to provide a wide range of events  to appeal to as wide an audience as possible FREE or at a nominal cost.

Our thanks go, not only to all those committed people who organise each event and to the members of the public who attend, but also to the wealth of companies, individuals and organisations who provide the sponsorship without which the festival could not happen. 

Best wishes from The Hythe Festival Committee
