In light of the global crisis and the unprecedented circumstances we find ourselves in, we have taken the difficult decision to postpone this year’s Hidden Door Festival until Spring 2021.
The current situation means we are unable to move forward with so much of the work needed to deliver a 10-day multi-arts festival in a secret new venue. It takes many months to pull together our packed programme of inspiring content, and with so much on pause right now we need to ensure it is the best possible event for our artists, our audience and the city.
We are still planning to do something in October, but this will be a smaller, one-off event, saving the full 10-day festival and the new venue for some time around May 2021. We will of course share more details as soon as we can. Tickets already purchased will be valid for the 2021 festival.
We are also looking at ways in which we can provide something positive in the coming weeks and months, creating new online content to bring artists, performers and audience together, and developing projects to support the creatives who have taken such a massive blow through all this.
We want to take this opportunity to thank you for your ongoing support, for us, for the artists, for this amazing city.
Stay safe, and we will see this place vibrant again…
