April 2021

We are excited to present our 2021 Festival. The impact that COVID-19 has had on the Arts industry has had a lasting impact. We are planning as best as possible to still persevere with our 2021 Festival, following health and safety guidelines recommended by municipal, local and international agencies. The safety and wellbeing of our artists, supporters and public is always our number one priority. All programs below are subject to change.
