Creative Sensemaker Live: reasons to be cheerful in 2021

About this ThinkIn

In partnership with Santander

After the darkest, dullest, most brutal year ever for live music and cinema, the arrival of the vaccine heralds a reawakening of arts and culture. Glastonbury’s delayed 50th birthday in June isn’t the only thing to look forward to. The inaugural edition of KITE, a festival of ideas and music, will take place in June too. The new Bond film No Time To Die will arrive in cinemas in April. And if you’re into that sort of thing, new albums are en route from Drake, Rhianna and Adele. Bring your diary and join Matt d’Ancona for a whistlestop tour of what’s to come – and please bring your own recommendations too.
