We are thrilled to announce that Wentworth Festival is back on our new date of Saturday 18th September 2021!
Obviously we had no intention of going anywhere in 2020, but as we all know a global pandemic made that decision for us and of course it was the right decision. The health and safety of all our friends, family and colleagues was and remains paramount. We all know someone who has been affected by this last year and our thoughts are very much with them.
Back in January of 2021 we made the decision that for Wentworth Festival to have any chance of going ahead in 2021 the best thing to do was to delay things a little further, so we moved the festival from June to September. But of course, at the time were just at the start of lockdown 0.3, so we were still very much in the land of hope!
However, following the recent “roadmap” announcement from the Prime Minister that all restrictions currently in place should be lifted by June, that gives us great pleasure in confidently saying we’ll see you on Saturday 18th September 2021!
If you have already purchased tickets for either the June 2020 or June 2021 dates, fear not as they of course will still be valid. If you cannot make the September date, of course refunds are available but before you apply we’d ask you to check out out new Donate Tickets page, where we are giving you the option to donate your tickets to one of our incredible NHS key workers who have worked incredibly hard to get us through this last year.
We’ll be very honest, as we always are with you, it’s been quite an emotional rollercoaster from making the decision to cancelling the festival in 2020, after three amazing years, to where we are today. There were even a few tears this week when we finally realised we were definitely coming back for 2021. We could not have done this without your support so, on behalf of all of us, thank you!
Please do continue to abide by all current restrictions until they are lifted – hands, face, space – and let’s all get back together very soon!
Much love, from Toby, Steve and all the Wentworth Festival team x
