Dear Applicants,


Due to the recent outbreak of the Coronavirus disease (Covid-19), we have taken the difficult decision to postpone the festival until 2021. The safety and well-being of our faculty, participants, and staff is of the utmost importance to us at Augustine Noble, and we would not want to willingly put anyone at risk. Whilst we are disappointed to not be able to proceed with the festival this year, we are very much looking forward to continue planning and pouring our efforts into making the festival even more successful for 2021! 

If you have any additional questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact us. If you have already submitted an application for 2020, we will automatically keep your application on file for next year. Thank you again for your interest, and hopefully we look forward to welcoming you to the festival in 2021. We wish you, your family, and friends good health and happiness during these uncertain times!
