Solstice Shorts Festival Arts Council Funding confirmed

Phew! After a bit of a false start when one of the match funders went silent and we had to go back to the Arts Council with a revised budget, today, we got confirmation that the money is finding it way through the labyrinth of the banking system into our bank account. NOW I can really get my teeth into organising! Zipidee-doo-dah, Zippidee-ay! Calloo Callay! etc. etc.


Solstice Shorts Festival is happening!

We’ve got our funding offer from The Arts Council, and we got our crowd funding, and several donations from private individuals, so we are just waiting to hear from our final match-funder.

We are working on the basis that they WILL fund us, or if they don’t, we will find the remaining money somehow, somewhere. So we are gearing up for the whole shebang, starting with the competition to find 12 NEW stories on the theme of time.

So WRITERS: starting tomorrow, Sunday 21st September (autumn equinox – we do love a theme) the competition is open. You can find the guidelines and the link to the submission platform on our Solstice Shorts Page. The competition CLOSES 31st October.
