Festival Season 2021

With a huge amount of sadness, and after much discussion, we have to announce that we are not in a position to be physically in attendance as an organisation for festival season 2021. 

This is not a decision we have made lightly, especially in the light of recent public discussion and events concerning the safety of women in the public sphere. But after a year of inactivity whilst many of our volunteers worked in the front line against Covid 19, we have not been able to fundraise to cover our costs, or spend the time needed to plan the complexities of recruiting and training our volunteers and managing the festival season programme.

We can share our resources with festivals, bands/artists, promotors, and other organisations and partners, if requested, so people can keep spreading our message throughout festival season. Keep up to date with us through our socials and let us know how you are spreading our message this summer. 

We hope to see you all back in 2022.
