HERTFORDSHIRE COUNTY SHOWGROUND – ST ALBANS

FRIDAY 29th JULY – SATURDAY 30th JULY 2022

LEGENDS FESTIVAL – HERTFORDSHIRE COUNTY SHOWGROUND

POSTPONEMENT NOTIFICATION – NEW DATE TBC

 

It is with great regret that we have been forced to postpone the Legends Festival at the Hertfordshire Country Showground, St Albans on the 29th and 30th of July 2022. We are currently planning to reschedule the event to next year, with existing customers being given the option of receiving double the amount of tickets on their booking, free of charge along with a £5 drinks voucher as a way of an apology and a thank you for sticking with us until 2023.

Alternatively, customers are welcome to use their tickets for this year at either of our remaining 3 Legends Festivals across the country in Cromer, Bristol or Guildford.

We are deeply sorry for the last-minute announcement, however, our industry relies heavily on an increase in ticket sales in the weeks leading up to an event. Sadly, we have not seen this expected rise in sales; therefore, running the event this year is now unviable.

2022 is proving an incredibly challenging year. The events and music industry has seen an unprecedented rise in production costs alongside lower than expected ticket sales due to the rising costs of living.

We enjoyed a fantastic event last summer, however, 2022 has brought new and unforeseen challenges. The Government to date have done nothing to assist the industry, however, they have brought in increases to VAT and removed permission to use red diesel, which has severely increased all costs.

We have tried up to the very last moment to proceed this year, but sadly we have finally been forced to make this difficult decision.

WHAT HAPPENS NEXT?
You don’t need to do anything, but please help us spread the word to any friends and family who were joining you at the event this year. Your ticket upgrade for next year will be automatically applied.
If you wish to transfer to one of our remaining Legends Festivals, simply email info@starlightconcerts.co.uk with your requested venue and we will be happy to switch your tickets for you.
