It is with regret that we confirm that LitFest21 won’t go ahead this year, for obvious reasons. Fear not, however, as we are working on alternative plans for 2021.
We have plans to harness the digital world, a whole arena of potential.
Watch this space as we work out how to implement our digital plans in 2021.
We are thinking of using zoom for collaborative events, recording videos and publishing the results on YouTube.
Newhaven’s very own LitFest!
Not to compete with Seaford’s existing festival, but to complement the existing event.
Held at a different time of year; watch this space for news as we wait to see if we’ll be allowed to run an event in 2021.
If and when it’s safe to do so, we want to harness the potential of the environment around us.
The great outdoors – tidemills or the esplanade, Castle Hill or Seaford Head – the beach, the downs, the river, the harbour.
If it’s safe to do so later this year, we’ll be putting on outdoor events.
Mixing it up
We love music, almost as much as we love the spoken word – or maybe the same…we’re not sure.
But we want to explore ways to bring the two together, whether as workshops to explore the links between poetry and music, or combining both spoken word and musical performance.
If it’s safe, watch this space for news!
