HORSHAM district residents are able to enjoy a superb selection of special events and activities throughout the summer holidays.

The 2012 Summer Events Guide, produced by Horsham District Council, offers some fantastic events to look forward to, from free toddlers’ fun sessions and a wide range of sports coaching and excursions, to classical concerts and events celebrating Shakespeare’s anniversary.

Events to look out for include special 2012 sporting events, summer sports camps and holiday excursions, family days out and hands on fun, summer carnivals, fetes and village shows, concerts, drama and film shows, sports to watch and take part in outdoor action with walks and talks, camp building and bushcrafts.

HDC cabinet member for arts, heritage and leisure Jonathan Chowen said: “This guide is essential reading for anyone living in or visiting the Horsham district and confirms the view I’ve always held about the district being a special place, full of vibrant and creative communities.

“There is so much to see and do, so why not take your family, invite your friends or treat yourself - but whoever you go with, make sure you get out there and enjoy some of the fantastic events on offer this summer.”

More events have been planned since the production of this guide and details of others will be published in the County Times and on the newspaper’s website www.wscountytimes.co.uk

People can contact their library, information centre or parish council to see what else is on in their area and the guide is available to download from the district council via www.horshamentertains.co.uk
