“A Year on the Cloud with Repton Litfest”
We came a long way in our first two years, building on our initial success by adding more artists, new events and new venues within our beautiful historic village. Just have a look at Gallery 2019 to refresh those memories. The festival experience we offer is hugely enhanced by the stunning historic setting of Repton School and covid permitting, we hope to be welcoming you back in 2021.
We’re sure that you, our supporters and visitors, have never felt more in need of our festival experience so this year we are online with a series of events that will occur at 7.00 pm on the first Monday of every month.
It’s new ground for us but we have managed to find some very professional support and feel confident you will enjoy the experience. The fascinating Sophie Draper who helped us launch the festival back in 2018 has agreed to be our first online victim and you can find all the details HERE.
“A Year on the Cloud” launches on Monday 12th October at 7.00pm with the innovative formula that is - “Books that shaped me” – a series of illustrated interviews. The author is restricted to the six books that he or she feels have most influenced their writing. The interview concludes with the question “ If you gave the younger you a book – what would it be?”
Our first offering with Sophie Draper is entirely free but you do need to register – CLICK HERE. You will have the opportunity to ask questions and win a personally inscribed set of Sophie’s novels.
We are a volunteer, not for profit organisation. Other than our commercial sponsors, who are themselves, suffering the slings and arrows of the outrageous covid, our patrons are our only source of income. The pandemic could not have come at a worse time for us as we seek to establish a festival that is sustainable into the future. We have not had the opportunity to build financial reserves but despite this adversity are determined to continue. Please consider becoming a “Repton Litfest Friend” by clicking here – we really do need your support.
Our new online existence makes us very social media dependent and it would be great if you could take a little time to leave us a comment or recommendation for others to see on our Facebook page! (If you need a little guidance on how to do that – just click here!) If you are a newcomer to the festival please join our mailing list to make sure you don’t miss out on any news!
