Due to recent developments related to Covid-19 (coronavirus), we regret to announce that Nottingham New Music Weekend and Midlands New Music Symposium scheduled to take place on 7-10 May will be postponed until further notice. We are monitoring the situation and hope to reschedule to either later this year or early 2021. If you have submitted a work or proposal, please rest assured that we will keep your submission on file for the future date.
Stay Safe and thank you for your understanding.
