Chichester novelist Kate Mosse, a supporter of the festival from its inception back in 2012, underlined the importance of the festival to Chichester; the Mayor of Chichester Julian Joy then declared the festival open. Performers on Saturday afternoon included classical cross-over duo Tesoro, The Bernardi Music Group, jazz-blues singer Olivia Stevens and Chichester University’s Sleepy Lagoon Orchestra.
