QweerFest postponed till further notice
We hope you are doing OK, and enjoying the easing of restrictions and sunshine.
Unfortunately we are here with the sad news that we have had to make the difficult decision to cancel QweerFest in October.
Our venue The Apple Tree has just informed us that they are having ongoing and delayed renovation works which mean that we won’t be able to host QweerFest there this year.
Without a venue, and still with ongoing uncertainty about the pandemic, we think the fairest thing to do is to cancel the event and offer ticket holders your money back. We still very much hope to do QweerFest at some point, but this allows us to wait a little longer until we can be sure of putting on the festival we wanted to.
As we always promised, you will be able to get a refund for your ticket, minus Outsavvy’s booking fee, which is unfortunately not refundable.
Supporting Queer Artists and Performers
Despite the set backs, also want to make a donation to our listed qweer performers we had booked for the event. The past year has been extremely difficult for qweer artists, and so we hope we can still provide them a little income through this.
If you are happy to not claim your ticket money back, then we will instead donate it to our performers. If you do want a refund, email us no later than Monday 31st May, and we will process this for you. If you don’t want to claim a refund, you don’t need to do anything – we will split the remaining ticket money equally between our performers in June.
Thanks again so much for buying a ticket to QweerFest, we’re so sorry that it couldn’t happen, but hope for better times ahead, and that we get to meet you all in person in the not too distant future.
