COVID-19 has caused so much devastation to lives and livelihoods that sometimes it is difficult to see a way of rebuilding.

Yet rebuild we will. Initially this may be through digital and online content, then eventually we will be back on stages in shared celebrations of great music, comedy, literature and film.

If you are in a position to, we would ask you to donate to our fundraising campaign to help our festivals bounce back in 2021/22.

This funding will enable the festival to book more artists, hire more technical crews, work with more venues, attract bigger audiences, support the local hospitality industry and generally help make our city a more attractive place to live and work. 

Any support,no matter how small, will be greatly appreciated.
