In 2020 the festival moved from the High Street to online. When the organisers opened for bookings, spaces for the 2021 festival were snapped up.

“Last year, over 500 people tuned in on the day, and the video of the event is now available on Chat Together’s YouTube channel. Since September, the numbers of views have steadily grown to almost 750” said Cat Randle A-Fest organiser.

The A-Fest team are also building a directory of all of the opportunities for young people in Andover, which can be found on our website at  Please do get in touch to add your organisation to the site.

The organisers are hoping that A-Fest will return to Andover High Street in September 2021 as long as it is safe and legal to do so.
