Message to ticket holders
It is with a heavy heart that we announce the postponement of London Swing Festival 2020. We have been monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic and we feel, with the advice available to us from health professionals in our scene and beyond, that this will be the best solution for all of us. The health and wellbeing of our community is our top priority. We need to be proactive in our power to prevent the spread of this disease further and we feel that this is the best course of action with the information we have at present. This is not a decision we have taken lightly. We are acutely aware of the financial repercussions on all parties from attendees to travelling teachers to bands, venues and staff, and we ask for your patience as we navigate this unchartered territory. We plan to move this event to November 2020 and are currently in discussion about what dates that would be. Stay tuned for more information!
Please know that we care about the wellbeing of our community and do not intend to cause panic or stress. We have a commitment to you all to bring the best London Swing Festival has to offer, and we expect we will be able to deliver that, just not until further down the line.
In the meantime we’ll be sharing any updates we have with you via our Facebook page, and please check your inboxes if you have already bought a ticket.
Please take a look at our blog 'Navigating our way through a COVID-19 Minefield' and our FAQs on the matter.
Stay safe everyone and keep washing your hands.
Michaela, Pippa, Scottie and Team LSF
