So, after a few nail-biting moments, here we are - the Holt Festival 2021 programme for your delectation!

Some festival favourites and some great new names should prove a perfect mix of fun, frolics and a bit of intellectual stimulation - just what we need to ease us out of the difficult times we’ve all been living through.

We are, of course, delighted to have restrictions lifted but our main focus is on ensuring your health and safety and the health and safety of our volunteers, staff and performers. With that in mind, we will continue to be cautious and mindful of any concerns and all venues will be operating on a restricted capacity so that there is still ample space for social distancing. 

We’re so looking forward to seeing you all again!

The Artprizes' Shortlisted Artists have just been announced for 2021 click here for details. The Shortlist Exhibitions open on Saturday 24 until Saturday 31 July.
