The beauty about a historic town like Rye in East Sussex, is that it naturally attracts the 'arty and musical types'.
With this brings enthusiastic and talented individuals who wish to share their exuberance for the love of the arts, meaning locals and guests from afar benefit. The town lends itself easily to being a perfect backdrop for these art events, whatever the season.
Rye Jazz festival has just ended its second successful year and now Rye is blessed with Rye Arts Festival, which runs from the 14th to 29th September.
The festival draws on a rich selection of literary, classical music, contemporary music, walks, theatre, talks and special events. There is, without doubt, something for everyone. As you would expect with a quaint, medieval town like Rye and the hauntingly beautiful Romney Marsh, the venues are stunning too. The festival takes full advantage of the beautiful churches that dot the landscape with their superb acoustics. The fabulous houses and Inns hold host to literary events, Lamb House and The Mermaid Inn, to name just a couple. Finally, it would be wrong not to include the stunning landscape, so special events include, cellar tours in Winchelsea and walks through WWII Rye.
For a full list of events visit Rye Arts Festival. If you want to make Rye your base for the week or a weekend, look no further than our perfectly positioned Rye Holiday Cottages. Rye and Romney Marshes are strikingly beautiful in the Autumn months and a great time to visit.
