19 March 2020: unfortunately, but probably not surprisingly, DfC has had to cancel Darlington Arts Festival 2020.

In light of the changing situation around the virus Covid-19 pandemic, and with no foreseeable end to restrictions and venue closures, we have decided to cancel this year’s festival.

It is disappointing but the health of participants and audiences is paramount.

Visit the website and follow DfC on social media for updates that we receive from arts practitioners and venues about their events,

Thank you to evenyone who had agreed to be part of the festival. It was fantastic to have so many enthusiatisc and talented people involved.
