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….. see the full statement here
We are planning to run a number of online activities over the coming weeks and months and have also begun to compile the HF Arts InfoBoard to provide connections to websites that, in an Arts context, have interesting online content. We hope you find this useful. HF ARTS InfoBoard

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.
