We have been encouraged by responses from artists, performers and traders for a 2021 Saltaire festival. We are considering all options for the 2021 Festival and aim to make an announcement after Easter when there has been further progress with the phased relaxation of Covid restrictions. All of us would wish to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the designation of Saltaire as a UNESCO World Heritage Site – but our celebrations will need to be safe in the context of the Covid-19 pandemic.
In the meantime we have launched a new donation site (Saltaire Community Festival – Online Social Fundraising Donation Platform | Givey), replacing the Just Giving site. The 2020 Festival poetry anthology ‘Green Aire’ has proved popular, and copies can be purchased via the website or via shopappy (Saltaire Festival, Saltaire | ShopAppy).
We are also aiming to recruit further volunteers – if you are interested in helping with planning, communications, finance, fund-raising, logistics or volunteer management, so if you are interested in joining the team please contact us on Volunteers@saltairefestival.co.uk
