This year's will look different from previous years. Gatherings may be smaller. More might take place online. But the memories and human connections can be just as meaningful.
To Absent Friends exists to encourage participation – groups and individuals are welcome to take part in whatever way they feel is appropriate. If you'd like to take part in this year's festival, check out our ideas page or take inspiration from what people have done in festivals past.
Featured below are just a few of the many community events taking place this year. A full list of events is available here: 2020 Events Listings
