As you know we're taking a break this year but The Cookie & Firebug are pleased to announce WIDE EYED, a brand new multi stage all dayer at O2 Academy Leicester on Saturday 16th May featuring the awesome Beak>! and plenty of Handmade alumni.
Sorry it's been so long since you've heard from us. Handmade will be taking a year out in 2020 - largely because the change of bank holiday dates make our usual spot in the year trickier, but also so we can spend a bit more time on bigger and better things for 2021.
In the interim, the team behind the festival are individually working on some realy exciting events in 2020 that we can't wait to share with you. Make sure you're following The Cookie, Firebug and The Robot Needs Home Collective to be the first to find out whats coming from each of us.
We hope you'll bear with us, and in the meantime here's the 2019 Retrospective from our long time collaborator Dale Curtis. Music from the incredible Yr Poetry.
