How to enjoy our events … in so many ways!


This year we are offering another hybrid Festival.  You can enjoy the Festival by:

  • attending in-person events in our venues
  • viewing recorded events at your leisure after the Festival finishes by buying a Digital Pass for £20.  This year we are offering recordings of nine events hosted at QUAD on Saturday 20 and Saturday 27 May.
We will not be able to offer live streams of events this year.

You can either buy individual recordings for £5 each or buy a Digital Pass for £20 for all nine events.

These Digital Pass recordings will only be available for six weeks after the Festival finishes, from Tuesday 30 May to Tuesday 11 July.  This gives you unlimited access to these recordings.  You can buy your Digital Pass online.  Access to the recordings will be through an online platform (YouTube) and you will be sent a link.
