Primadonna Festival

We are, unapologetically, Primadonnas. We got together at the start of 2019 to see if we could create the world as it should be, for one weekend. And with lots of help from our friends, we did it.

The inaugural Primadonna Festival brought together writers, editors, readers, publishers, artists, thinkers, comedians, performers, musicians, foodies and happy people of all ages and many backgrounds. We shared experiences, explored new ideas and imagined new possibilities.

People told us they hadn’t just had fun. Primadonna had changed their lives. They begged us to do it again. 

And this year, in spite of everything, we did. And it was amazing, all over again. 

If you were at Primadonna, you'll know that there is a unique spirit of friendship, solidarity, support and fun. Thanks to you, the festival has become a haven of all that is good in the world. It really is the world as it should be.

But it takes effort, and money, and while we have the former in droves, we don't have a lot of the latter. 

If you're able to support our ongoing work by chipping in to this crowdfunder, it will go a long way towards making Primadonna happen again next year, and the year after, and the year after that. 

Every pound you donate helps us deliver a Festival – and the Primadonna Prize – that enables imagination, curiosity, equality and joy to thrive.

By donating any amount, you are helping ensure that we can bring back the world as it should be – for one weekend next year, and far beyond that in the future. 

Thank you. We couldn't do it without you.
