Thank you again to everyone who came to celebrate with us.

If you didn’t make it along to the “live” events taking place throughout Saturday, you can still find Saboteur Awards Festival materials all over our YouTube channel, which is available here.

Due to the COVID-19 situation we had no option but to make the Saboteur Awards Festival 2020 a digital event. To add to that, we also decided to make the poetry performances and the poetry panel entirely free for anyone to view and take part in. However, if you’d like to donate anything – large or small – to the Sabotage Reviews, following the recent festival, then we’d extremely grateful.

You can make a quick and easy donation to the Sabotage Reviews organisation via PayPal:
