Festivals & arts organisations are all facing very uncertain futures.

Many literary festivals including Hay, Edinburgh and Oxford have cancelled this year incurring significant financial losses. As a not for profit arts and education charity we run to cover our costs, trying to making small surpluses each year to help with running costs for the following year. We are currently appraising various models for 2020 based on public health, finances and our community’s appetite for culture and have launched an emergency public appeal to raise £25k.
