Welcome to PENFEST 2020! This well known and much loved Arts Festival will run from Saturday 26th September until Sunday 4th October 2020.

Most of the “events” are online this year, though there will be some open studios and an exhibition at St James the Less Church Hall to visit in person, if it is safe to do so.
