Sarnia Festival Arts (SFA) has been organising and promoting the Victor Hugo International Music Festival since its inception in 2002. The first weeklong music festival marked the bicentenary of Hugo’s birth and was such a success that similar events have been held on a biennial basis ever since. The festival has been generously supported by a number of local businesses as well as the Guernsey Arts Commission and has successfully attracted a number of high calibre musicians from around the world including Nicola Benedetti, The Berlin Philharmonic Octet and many other international names.
