The Rye Arts Festival is held each year in September. The Festival was founded in 1972 to bring the arts in their varied forms to Rye and has welcomed many illustrious names and fostered many young talents. The Festival is a Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO). This clearly defines the responsibilities of members and is a more efficient structure.
