Revellers who were attending a popular music festival held across town centre bars and pubs are being offered a refund – as the headline acts have been postponed to 2021.
The organisers of the Nantwich Jazz, Blues and Music Festival had already announced this year’s event – due to take place between April 9 and April 13 – had been postponed due to the on-going coronavirus outbreak.
But in a social media post today (March 27) the festival has announced a majority of this year’s headline acts will now take to the stage between Thursday, April 1 and Monday, April 5 next year.
Anyone who bought a wristband for the performances around the town are being offered a refund – or they can use the ticket next year.
In a post on social media, the festival said: “First of all, thank you for your patience over the last week during these unprecedented times. We apologise for this taking longer than we intended. Everyone we have had contact with has been absolutely amazing and supportive of the festival. We cannot put into words how much it is appreciated.
“We have now decided to postpone the headline line-up to next Easter (Thursday 1st April 2021 – Monday 5th April 2021) and after consultation with the bands have confirmed the following dates. Any tickets purchased for the 2020 headline gigs will be valid for the new dates.
“We really hope you will be able to join us at the rearranged dates but if you are unable to, a refund can be claimed from your original ticket vendor. Refunds will be available until May 31st 2020 when your booking will be transferred to the rearranged 2021 gig.
“The postponed dates for the ‘Around the town’ part of the festival are yet to be confirmed as all participating venues are currently closed. We would like to try and do something before Easter 2021 if we can but, due to the prevalent uncertainty we are not in a position to arrange that at this stage. Any pre-ordered wristbands will be valid for Easter 2021 but a refund will be available up to April 30.”
The following performance have already been rearranged:
Nantwich Civic Hall:
- Thursday, April 1 – Big Country;
- Friday, April 2 – Stereo MCs;
- Saturday, April 3 – Ruby Turner;
- Sunday, April 4 – FM
- Monday, April 5; Blockheads, Jeremiah Ferrari and Suburban Symphony
A date has yet to be confirmed for Sari Schorr, who was due to play at The Crown.
Anyone wishing to get their wristbands refunded should email their name, ordering email address, Paypal booking reference, and a contact telephone number to firstname.lastname@example.org.
