47th Easter Festival Cancelled
4 April - 12 April 2020
Saturday 14 March 2020
It is with heavy hearts we announce that we must cancel the 2020 St Endellion Easter Festival, owing to the potential impact of Coronavirus on the people and place we hold so dear.
We have been monitoring the developing situation across the country and keeping a very close eye on Public Health England and government advice. Following consultation with the Church Wardens at St Endellion and the Trustees of St Endellion Festivals Trust, we have decided it would be irresponsible to continue with the 2020 Easter Festival. Please be patient with us as we do our best to do right by everyone involved in the planning and delivery of the Festival. We are acutely aware of the problems this cancellation could cause and would like to apologise for any inconvenience. We waited for as long as conceivably possible before making this decision, hoping against hope that we might be able to persevere. It has now become clear that it would not be fair to anyone involved given the potential risks. We hope you will understand how hard we have worked on your behalf to avoid this situation: sadly, it is now beyond our control. In the Festival’s entire 47-year history, this is only the second time we’ve ever had to cancel (the last time was because of the Foot and Mouth disease crisis), so this really is a last resort.
As a ticket holder, you are, of course, entitled to a refund. Please look at the box office page on this website for details of how to secure a refund. However we are looking at a potential loss running into many thousands of pounds so if you felt able to donate your ticket price, or a portion of it, to help the festival cover costs, we would be enormously grateful for your generosity.
Thank you for your continued support, and we look forward to sending you details of the 2021 festival in due course. In this time of uncertainty and worry, the key pillars of Endellion magic are more important than ever: kindness, collaboration and hope. We are committed to safeguarding the wellbeing of every single cherished Endellionite.
If you have any questions or queries at all, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
With love and best wishes,
Suzanne Doyle and Katy Thomson, Co-Chairs, St Endellion Easter Festival
