Festival Cancelled for 2020

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. The current restrictions on travel make planning very difficult and no one is certain when these will be lifted.

Unfortunately we have taken the decision to cancel the festival for this year.

We apologise for the disappointment and hope you understand our reasons

Thank you for your continued support

We hope to run the next Festival in autumn 2021

Please keep an eye on our Facebook page for any news.
