We simply need to get together.

Festival Insights and Festival Awards join We Are The Fair, AIF and Access All Areas to create an event to gather, reflect and look to the future.

Here at Festival Awards HQ, we simply think that this year, everybody deserves an award. The resilience, tenacity and determination to keep going, whether your event went ahead or not, would make for an extremely long night of gong-giving.

As it happens, the good people at We Are The Fair were thinking along the same lines so this year, we’ve teamed up with them, the Association of Independent Festivals and Access All Areas to organise and underwrite a not for profit party.

All excess funds will be donated to Stagehand , the industry charity that raised and distributed in excess of £1.7m to keep roofs over heads and food on the tables of crew and technicians that had received the least support though the Covid 19 crisis.

More details and line up information will be announced during the coming weeks, but that’s not important because the right people will be there.

Tickets cost £15 and you can BUY THEM HERE.
