It is with much sadness that we have taken the decision to postpone our literature festival. Given current conditions and advice, we want to ensure that all our audiences, authors, volunteers and staff remain as healthy as possible and we feel it is our duty and responsibility to protect others by not proceeding with our events at this time.

We are currently investigating options for rescheduling events and ask that you bear with us in the meantime whilst we talk with different venues and authors. We are also in talks with our box office - run externally - and appreciate your patience whilst we finalise information for those who have purchased tickets for events due to take place at the end of March. We will keep you informed as soon as we have further information.

Thank you all for your continued support - as a charity we rely so much on income from our audiences and sponsors to keep running and hope that, however uncertain the future is at present, we can continue to bring high-quality, inspiring multi-arts experiences to the Midlands.

Jonathan Dove in Conversation

Few, if any, contemporary composers have so successfully or consistently explored the potential of opera and the human voice to communicate, create wonder and to enrich people’s lives. Celebrating his 60th birthday year, our 2019 featured composer, Jonathan Dove, joins Dr Kate Romano to talk about his prolific career and commitment to community development through innovative musical projects. A festival co-commission, his new work, a setting of George Herbert’s Vertue, can be heard in our VOCES8 concert this evening (Event 11G).
