Forgotten Futures 2021 Cancelled

We are extremely sad to report that Forgotten Futures will no longer be able to take place in May, either as an in person event or as the streamed show we had promised would replace it. Refunds will be issued by our ticketing partners imminently.

The new covid variants and change in outlook since Christmas make it impossible to bring together so many artists from across the country in one small space, so the only responsible decision is to halt the event completely.

However, several artists have very kindly offered to produce some completely unique streamed performances from their home cities, which we will be sharing with you all for free through our Youtube channel when the time comes.

Having postponed the event by a full year already, with financial implications we are unable to continue to absorb, we are making the decision to put this idea on ice for now. Hopefully we will be able to bring Forgotten Futures back in some form in future years.

We want to extend an enormous thank you to Attenborough Arts Centre and all the artists who worked so hard to prepare. We sincerely appreciate your understanding, and look forward to a return to live events as soon as possible.

We had some amazing things planned for Forgotten Futures 2020 that for a long time it looked like wouldn’t come to fruition. Thankfully, a few weeks ago Attenborough Arts Centre let us in to one of the spaces we would have been using for the event to film a couple of special performances. We can finally bring you a little bit of what this years event would have been like, and what you can expect from Forgotten Futures in 2021.
