Happy New Year – and plans for 2022

A very Happy New Year to all our friends & supporters.

We have spent a long time thinking about what form the Festival should take in 2022. As you know, for obvious reasons our 2021 Festival was entirely digital. It's so difficult to know what conditions will be like in August that we think our next festival should be a hybrid one, with some live, in-person elements, some online events and some events off-site, collaborating with local partners. Our themes will certainly include the events of 1922 as we mark their centenary, but we are also thinking about other themes. We will keep you posted on our plans as they develop.

In the meantime, all our 2021 Festival content is free to view here, and we update our Festival blog regularly with interesting historical content to read, listen to and watch.
