It is with great regret and sadness that we are writing this. In March this year, the country was locked down due to the pandemic of Covid 19 and since then we have been putting our time and efforts into uplifting people’s spirits and creating togetherness through the power of our platform and music. From nhs hampers to doorstep singing sessions for people in real need and our live streams which have put a smile on so many faces. We have remained positive throughout the whole process.
As we came out of lockdown we saw a glimmer of hope that we may be able to go ahead with the festival. We waited patiently and nervously for more announcements and then it came, the green light was given for outdoor events to go ahead with a covid 19 secure plan which we began to work on. We worked tirelessly and was excited, not just for our ticket holders but our suppliers and family run businesses in which we use for our production, marquees, bars and furniture and drink supplies. We knew being their first and last festival this year was potentially crucial to the survival of their business.
However on Friday the 24th July, we received an email from the local authorities whereby all a decision was made that all events in the borough should be postponed untill 2021.
We as event organisers are so upset for our ticket holders, suppliers, employees and acts that this event will unfortunately have to be rolled over to next year. The date for the rescheduled event is Saturday 4th September.
It is now time that we ask for your support for the survival of the festival and we can not thank you enough for the kind messages that we continue to receive everyday from our loyal followers.
Please see our plan below:
Every ticket purchased will be valid for the rescheduled event in 2021 with Shalamar still heading the line up. We are adding more acts to that line up in return for your support and loyalty. We will announcing our new line up very soon!
Also every ticket holder will receive the below for holding on to their ticket.
1. A chance for 10 ticket holders to win £150 worth of drinks vouchers to spend at next years event. This is to be drawn daily on 1st August at random.
2. An exclusive soultown live stream on saturday 5th september with live PA’s from some famous acts and our resident DJs.
3. We will also be running soultown hampers for 100 lucky ticket holders to enjoy on the day of the stream.
4. A chance for 10 ticket holders to win backstage passes to our next event in December.
