It is with great regret that we have taken the decision to cancel Deptford Literature Festival on Saturday March 14th, following the escalation of the COVID-19 outbreak.
We’re saddened to do this, but feel it is the best decision for protecting the safety and health of our audiences, partners, artists, staff and volunteers; and that our duty of care to them, outweighs the Festival taking place at this point.
For ticket-holders to paid events, we will be reimbursing all ticket purchases as soon as possible. Please bear with us as we process these payments over the next few days.
We’re very sorry to do have to do this, but hope that we’ll be able to welcome audiences to Deptford Literature Festival in the not too distant future.
Deptford Literature Festival celebrates the diversity and creativity of South East London through stories, words and performance. It is run by Spread the Word in collaboration with independent producer Tom MacAndrew, and funded by Arts Council England.
