Although in the midst of another lockdown, at Hometown we are being positive for the future and are hoping over the next few months things will have improved and we can all go outside and spend some much needed quality time with loved ones.
What better time and place to enjoy their company than at one of our awesome events which we hope to be bringing back for us all to enjoy in 2021.
We have now made a decision of how to proceed. Following the Government guidance on the Four Steps out of lockdown we have decided to cancel The Petersfield Spring Festival which would normally take place in May, but we are planning on bringing back our events with the first being Petersfield Summer Festival in August. Your safety is our number one priority and we are in discussion with the local authorities and will only go ahead IF IT SAFE TO DO SO. Please keep an eye on this website and on our social media for updates.
When they return, will be as you have to come to expect but with added excitement and love for enjoying a drink and a dance with loved ones, browsing the quality stalls for a special gift or treat, sitting in the sun and chilling for the afternoon listening to awesome music, watching arena displays of talented animals and dazzling performers, admiring the vehicles from days gone by or taking a selfie with a character from your favourite film or TV show. We can't wait...
So with fingers crossed and if we all help each other through these next few months and do what we need to do, we will ask you to plan ahead and SAVE THE DATES. Click on each of the events pages in the menu above to check the dates we have booked in to hopefully bring our events back.
In the meantime, please stay safe and we will see you all soon.

Hometown Events are the team behind the awesome Petersfield Festivals. Organised by Ben Errey and Steve Jacob with their amazing team of part time crew and volunteers. Ben and Steve created Hometown in 2011 in order to rescue the August Bank Holiday Petersfield Festivities, with only six weeks to prepare. They saved and rebranded the event and haven’t looked back since.
Now Hometown Events organise numerous large community based events each year and have an ever growing corporate client base too.
Every effort is made to ensure the highest quality from start to finish. Everything from the wide range of performers on our stage to the award winning sausages on our catering operation. This attention to detail (plus hundreds of hours of planning) is what makes our events totally awesome.
Ben and Steve are both proud residents of Petersfield and are heavily involved in the community. Both have been, or still are, members of Petersfield Round Table and help to raise thousands of pounds for charity each year. Ben is a previous Town Councillor and Steve organises charity quizzes each year.
