Many organisations are contributing to the year long festival. We attempt to give brief information of them all here.
Coronavirus has meant that we have had to put on hold the whole of this year long festival.
At present the plan is to celebrate Gilpin 2020+1 in 2021 when we hope to reschedule almost all of the events in the calendar below – all of which are postponed – to new dates in 2021.
Events are being organised by very many different organisations though and if in doubt please contact the organisation in question.
See you next year!
