As part of the Horsham District Year of Culture, The Capitol will be hosting a small number of one-off events. These may be larger shows than we might usually accommodate, or simply special things that we think have a particularly interesting cultural appeal. Watch out for the Year of Culture logo throughout the year on our website. To find out more about the Year of Culture click here.
