It is with great sadness that we announce that the Harwich Festival 2020 is cancelled. It has been an extremely difficult decision but our first priority has to be the health and well-being of our audience, artists, volunteers, staff and everyone who is involved with the Harwich Festival. Following the governments advice to avoid unnecessary
gatherings and to protect the vulnerable people in our community with social distancing, this has now become an unavoidable reality.
As a not-for-profit organisation, the Trustees have also had to consider the consequences a last minute cancellation would have for the Harwich Festival and the artists and community it supports going forward.
We thank you for your understanding and continued support of the Harwich Festival.
We will of course be back once the situation has improved. Therefore please keep an eye on our website and social media for updates, future events and news on the next festival in due course.
Please take care of yourselves and we look forward to seeing you soon. If you have any questions at all please do not hesitate to get in touch.
Peter Davis – Artistic Director
This online exhibition is by seven members of the Dovercourt Art Club, showcasing their skills through the pictures that they have painted. The featured artists have over 200 years of experience between them and the paintings of this virtual showcase reflect a variety of styles and mediums
It initially hoped to display the art work in room 6 of the Harwich Arts and Heritage Centre in March, unfortunately due to precautions for the Covid-19 pandemic we can to the difficult decision to postpone the event. We plan to reopen the gallery once the social distancing measures have been lifted. In the mean time we hope you enjoy this virtual exhibition.
