Following the postponement of this year’s spring Festival to the autumn, due to the Coronavirus pandemic, we are delighted to announce that many of the speakers from the original May dates are able to reschedule their diaries to the autumn. Unfortunately, Michael Portillo wasn’t able to make the new dates, however we are delighted that he will be joining us for a special evening in December. In the coming weeks, we will also be announcing further events for the autumn Festival.
Ticket bookings are now open. It is our sincere hope that we will be able to stage the Festival in the autumn, however if for any reason, the current restrictions in the UK, do not change and we are unable to stage the Festival, all tickets bought from 3 April 2020, will have the face value automatically transferred as a credit to next year’s Festival, which is scheduled for 7-15 May 2021. As per our terms and conditions, tickets purchased from 3 April 2020, for the autumn Festival, will be treated as a non-refundable donation.
Any ticket holders for the May 2020 Festival, who have not received an email communication from us, by 3 April, please send us an email stating your name and the email address that you used to book your tickets.
As a not-for-profit charity, this pandemic has come at a very inopportune moment for us. We are already committed to the vast majority of the associated costs incurred with running the May Festival. In normal times, these costs, along with taking the Festival forward to the following year, would be met through box office sales, but this will not be achieved at the rate or timescale in which we need them. With that in mind, we have set up a fundraising donation page. If you would like to make a donation to the fund, we would be most grateful. If you can’t, we totally understand, but sharing the link would be hugely appreciated.
We look forward to welcoming you to the Festival in September. In the meantime, stay safe.
