We have taken the difficult decision to postpone Yarningham 2020 until next year. This has not been an easy decision to make but we feel that this is the right thing to do in the context of this unprecedented global public health situation.
The UK government and Public Health England have indicated that restrictions may need to be in place for several months. There is so much uncertainty around how this situation is unfolding and this makes it nearly impossible to plan and produce a festival for July. Additionally, there may still be warnings in place for those in higher risk categories to stay away from public spaces and it would be against the core values of Yarningham as an inclusive event to run an event that excludes the most vulnerable members of our community.
Our new dates will be Saturday 10th and Sunday 11th July 2021.
So, what do you do now?
All existing tickets will be valid for our new dates in July 2021. We are currently working with our workshop tutors to replicate our workshop programme for next year. In the event that the workshop you have booked is no longer available you will be given a face value refund.
If the new dates are not suitable for you, you are also entitled to a refund. Our ticket website partner We Got Tickets will be in touch with all ticket holders with details of how to request a refund should you need or want one. Please bear with them as they are processing an unprecedented number of refunds, cancellations and postponements for thousands of events.
For us, our exhibitors, workshop tutors and everyone involved with Yarningham this decision is devastating. We have been working hard behind the scenes to make this year’s festival the best yet. We ask that you consider supporting them in any way you can during this time. A full list of our exhibitors is available here.
We want to thank you all for your support and we know that you will share our disappointment.
Stay safe, take care of yourselves and we hope to see you in 2021.
