The Assembly at Heckfield Place invites filmmakers Joel Coen and Frances McDormand and friends to curate a three-day festival as part of its inaugural Cultural Exchange. 

From 3 – 5 October 2023, a limited number of guests will be invited to this magnificent Georgian property and its Dolby Atmos Screening Room to share ideas, make new connections and explore the many themes of a human experience that bind us all.

Heckfield has long stood as a meeting point, and over these three special days residents are invited to join us in knitting together an experience that reflects our love of art, connection and nature.

Curated by Frances McDormand, Joel Coen and painter and writer Eric Karpeles, along with The Assembly Curator Lucy Hyslop, each day is set to feature panel discussions, film screenings, art tours and incredible dining options.

We encourage you to attend all three days, or as many or few as you can.
