With Covid-19 playing havoc with the world, we unfortunately had to cancel the Petersfield Spring Festival which was due to take place over the Bank Holiday weekend as it has every year for almost a decade!
It was with a heavy heart we had to cancel this event as, although it is a crazy amount of hard work, we love organising it and putting it on for everyone to enjoy and yet our main priority was to ensure we all stay as safe as possible during these unprecedented times.
We couldn't let the weekend go unnoticed and so click on the image to the right to see a gallery of photos from years gone by and some promotion from our awesome traders who are going to miss you this weekend.
With the lockdown still in place we have also decided to carry on with The Petersfield Awards still as a way to help recognise all of our local heroes and businesses who are stepping up and helping out in this crisis we are all going through.
With this in mind, the Nomination stage is going to stay open until further notice so we can add to the hundreds of nominations we have already received and show our support for everyone we feel deserves recognition this year. NOMINATE NOW!

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.
