Festival Cancelled in 2020 - so let's make up for it in 2021

The pandemic has affected everyone. Guests cannot confirm they can attend and there is uncertainty on rules and regulations about any gatherings, especially in an enclosed environment like a cinema.

However given the current messages from the Government the likelihood is that restrictions will be fully lifted in summer, well before the festival. So we have taken the decision to start planning the festival in October.

However, to be able to plan this we need you to contact us (email below) and let us know just how many of you will attend?
