About the festival


A new festival profiling artists aged 65 years and over, who are established in their practise and recognised nationally or internationally for their work.


(B)old celebrates great artists who stand the test of time, and doesn't shy away from the issues facing them.


In industries that often celebrate and cater to the young, when are you truly 'in your prime'?


What impact has age had on your artistic practice, and how do you stay relevant? 


Headliners include: the father of 'reggae poetry', Linton Kwesi Johnson; leading poet-playwright Tony Harrison; the mother of contemporary African dance, Germaine Acogny; renowned author and creator of Mog the Cat, Judith Kerr; one of the world's greatest pianists, Alfred Brendel, and more.
