Centre for New Writing COVID-19 update

In light of the developing situation around COVID-19 and the Government’s latest advice, we have taken the decision to cancel all Literature Live events until Tuesday 30 June 2020.

Box office sales (by phone and in-person) were suspended with immediate effect from Tuesday 17 March. If you have purchased a ticket, you will be issued a full refund when services are resumed. Refunds for online ticket purchases will be issued directly to the customer by Quaytickets.

We will continue to monitor the updated advice from the NHS and Public Health England and will continue to review future events to ensure the health and safety of staff, students and visitors.

Staying connected

In difficult and uncertain times, it's important to focus on keeping calm and connected. In the coming weeks, we will be sharing content via our social media channels to encourage positive thoughts and conversation to help get you through.

Please follow us on Twitter @newwritingmcr and/or Facebook @CentreforNewWriting for further news and updates.
