In the light of Government recommendations, it is with deep regret that the Festival Board has taken the decision to cancel the 2020 Portsmouth Festivities due to take place June 2020.
Ensuring the safety of our artists, audience members and staff is our priority. 2020 would have been our 21st Festival and we had a remarkable line-up for you, and we hope it will be possible to stage some events at a later point.
As a Festival we have always been committed to our community and education outreach, and we will be stepping up our efforts in this area as we look to 2021. Please keep an eye on our website for updates on our future plans.
During this challenging time we send our supporters, audiences and colleagues our encouragement, support and best wishes for their health and well-being.
