Venue 40 Closed for 2020

Thursday, April 9, 2020 - 12:02

Dear Friends,

To all our companies who were planning to join us for Fringe 2020: thank you for your patience, and we hope you are all keeping well and safe. We have been thinking about the way forward from here, and would like to update you.

Sadly, we will not be attempting to operate as a Fringe venue this year, as our first concern is for the safety of our audiences, performers, staff, volunteers and local community. We look forward to operating again next year, all being well, and hope that you will want to return here. In the meantime, we would like to offer all our companies either:

  • a full refund of the money paid to us so far, or
  • roll-over of your deposit to secure the same slot here for Fringe 2021

Of course, after this year's experience, we cannot absolutely guarantee that we will run next year, but it is our firm intention to do so, and we would of course refund any deposits for 2021 in full if that doesn't happen for any reason.

Please let us know which option you would prefer, and if you would like a refund, send us your bank details and also a phone contact number so that our treasurer can verify the details for security purposes.

We very much hope to work with you again in future, and look forward to a truly celebratory Fringe 2021 when this crisis has (hopefully) passed.

Our very best wishes to you all,

Sue & Tony
