Organisers of the annual Nantwich Jazz, Blues & Music Festival have written to festival-goers to update them on plans for the event (which was due t take place in April).
They said: “First of all, thank you for your patience over the last few days and 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.”
They have now decided to postpone the headline line-up until next Easter (1st-5th April 2021) and after consultation with the bands have confirmed the following dates:
Thursday 1st April 2021 : Big Country
Friday 2nd April 2021 : Stereo MCs
Saturday 3rd April 2021 : Ruby Turner
Sunday 4th April 2021 : FM
Monday 5th April 2021 : Blockheads, Jeremiah Ferrari and Suburban Symphony
Monday 5th April 2021 : Noasis
Any tickets purchased for the 2020 headline gigs will be valid for the new dates.
Organisers are yet to confirm Sari Schorr at The Crown on Friday 2nd April 2021 as she is touring from America – but hope to secure the new date ASAP.
Organisers said: “We really hope you will be able to join us at the rearranged gigs 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.
They would also like to try and do something before Easter 2021 if possible, but are not presently in a position to arrange this.
Any pre-ordered wristbands will be valid for Easter 2021, but a refund will be available until 30th April.
Refunds can be obtained by emailing your name, ordering email address, the Paypal booking reference (on the Paypal email you received when booked) and a contact telephone number to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Organisers concluded: “Thank you for your continued patience and understanding. Stay safe and we promise to make 2021 one to remember!”
