Snape Maltings - Flipside Festival - 6, 7, 8 October 2017

FlipSide is back and it's bigger, bolder and greener than ever. The very best Latin American writers, artists and musicians in collaboration with their remarkable British and Canadian counterparts, will be part of a weekend of encounter and exploration where FlipSide will be thinking out loud and asking, how should we live now? 

From talks to walks, family fun to fascinating films, food, music and more, FlipSide has always put the accent on enjoyment and environmentally friendly entertainment; but this year it’s also thinking out loud, how do we live now? How should we live now? How do we even start to answer these questions? Why not ask Margaret Atwood or Jackie Kay, Ali Smith or Anna Pavord? Why not see what Helen Macdonald or Philip Hoare have to say? Eavesdrop on Anne Michaels or Álvaro Enrigue; voice your concerns with Iain Sinclair and Lucy Hughes-Hallet… They’ll all be here, along with many other tremendous talents, so why not join us?

Forget heads or tails, the coin will always land FlipSide up.
