ROOT 1066 International Festival

Sponsoring: Outstanding contribution to the community

ROOT 1066 is a festival of contemporary arts inspired by the 950 th anniversary of the Battle of Hastings - the most famous date in English history.

The Battle of Hastings was such a significant moment in this country’s history and a hugely rich source of inspiration - both the history itself and the impact it has had on our culture and identity.

The festival will mark the 950th anniversary as a national cultural event, offering audiences new perspectives on the history and legacy of 1066, exploring themes of invasion, migration and identity.

The festival has supported over 20 projects, including 10 new commissions from national and international artists, leading regional organisations and local producers.

Participatory projects have involved local communities, schools and colleges, shining a light on the people of Hastings and 1066 Country today.

The festival will take place from 3 September to 16 October 2016 in venues around Hastings and 1066 Country and also in Normandy.

It is being led by Hastings Borough Council with support from Arts Council England, the Coastal Communities Fund and wide range of partners, including many local businesses.
