The programme is now finalised for the virtual festival. Events include online talks, films, workshops, quiz, open mike session and a virtual cake break (BYO). The event is free but donations are encouraged to the National Emergencies Trust Coronavirus Appeal. There is also some merchandise available - t-shirts and stem caps.

It won't be same as the 'live' event, but it will provide a distraction with touring off the radar for the time being.

It's been rather pleasant. The list of films is worth a look too.
