Have your say

THE Chichester Festivities are promising a spectacular night – whatever the weather – at their showpiece finale on Saturday.

Director Amanda Sharp said she was thrilled that bookings are currently 600 up on this time last year for the Goodwood racecourse fireworks concert.

The hope is to be 1,000 up by the time the weekend comes.

Amanda conceded the weather for the three-week festival, which concludes on Saturday, had been atrocious.

But she insisted the fireworks concert was a fabulous event, come rain or shine.

Tickets are available from or on 01243 780192. The fun starts at Goodwood Racecourse at 5.30pm on Saturday.
