After a year off, the Workhouse Party is back! Or so we thought…
Core crew members met recently & decided with heavy hearts that, due to circumstances surrounding the Covid-19 outbreak, we have no choice but to postpone Workhouse Party 2020 indefinitely. Although uncertainty with respect to income and hence the financial risk for the organisers played a part in our decision, your safety was the reason for pulling the plug.
Those of you who have showed faith & enthusiasm by buying tickets already will receive full refunds.
We hope that the current restriction on travel and activities won’t be in place by July, but even if measures are softened it would be difficult for us to organise the event at short notice and encouraging a gathering of several hundred of our nearest & dearest – however much we might feel the need to party! – could still be irresponsible & hazardous.
Trustees of the Workhouse also concluded that they must cancel or postpone any event bookings for the summer. In other words, at the moment we don’t have a venue for an event in July anyway. By their calculation, the Workhouse charity risks a deficit of at least 12k for the year by taking this step. If you have ideas about how this situation be improved, please get in touch.
We love the Workhouse Party and we want to see you all there again soon. We just don’t know when that will be…in the meanwhile, look after one another however you can & stay safe. Together we’ll get through this. And when we next get together, trust it will be a Party to remember 😉
In the meantime, if you need to get in touch with us do so either by e-mail – firstname.lastname@example.org – or via our Facebook page. Thanks for taking the time to read & for your understanding.
