It is with enormous sadness and heavy hearts that we have taken the decision to cancel Holt Festival this year. It is a joyful celebration of the arts that we all look forward to and gives pleasure to so many people, but with the rapidly spreading pandemic and the threat of it continuing well into the summer, we feel that cancellation is the only sensible course of action.
Although the performances are cancelled, it is our intention that the two art prizes should still go ahead, and we are planning an online exhibition of the shortlisted entries, followed if possible, by a live exhibition at a later date.
If you have any questions please do get in touch and remember to sign-up to our mailing list for the latest festival news.
We trust that there will be better times ahead and that the festival will be back next year from Sunday 25 to Saturday 31 July 2021.
