Sadly, we have finally conceded and called off our plans to reschedule the Weekend Three events originally planned for our May Festival. 

We were fortunate to successfully stage Weekends One and Two back in the carefree days of May. Ticket sales broke our previous records and the audience showed up in COVIDSafe droves. Thank you to all those who have held onto their tickets in the hope of seeing the Weekend 3 events eventually staged — your support gave us the impetus to keep trying.

We look forward to sharing ideas, wisdom and laughs with you all in 2022.

Please email to advise Viv ( vivfog.qlf@gmail.com ) if you have queries regarding refunds or donations to the Festival.
