Announcement: Arts E-Live 2020


Due to the current pandemic, many arts venues and meeting places are closed to the public. It is not yet known whether these restrictions will still be operating (or in part) by October. 

This makes planning our 2020 festival challenging to say the least!  However our aim to champion the Arts and all our wonderful groups in Mole Valley has not waivered. We do not want to cancel Arts Alive this year.  

The Festival Committee has therefore decided that 2020 will be our year of ‘Arts E-Live’ – a month long programme of arts events taking place in an appropriate way, but promoted exclusively online.

Currently, Arts E-Live will comprise –

  • A month-long programme of art events – but delivered in a way appropriate to the time, either in person if the restrictions have been lifted, or online; 
  • No printed programme – and therefore no print deadline – which enables us to commence registrations far later so eventholders have a good idea of the format for performing in October;
  • All events to be promoted more widely and creatively, through this website, our facebook page and twitter accounts and general posters/flyers;
  • No launch or finale evening, BUT a weekly show on Surrey Hills Radio throughout October detailing the events available throughout the month.

So, the show will most certainly go on! But with us providing as much support as we can to help groups reach their audiences.  Watch this space, and thank you so much for your support.
