Thursday 28 October – Sunday 14 November

After months of being stuck at home, this year’s festival theme is Coming Out.

Let’s come out in support of queer arts and cultural venues. Let’s come out and be reunited with the LGBTQIA community. Let’s come out for the injustices facing our community.

And for those who aren’t ready to Come Out, we’ve got some fab digital content on offer too.

More events and artists announced soon!
