Chipping Campden Literature Festival 2020 Cancelled

I regret to have to inform you that due Covid-19 I have had no choice but to cancel the 2020 Literature Festival. All ticket holders are entitled to a full refund and this process will begin very soon.Please see the refund procedure below.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all 2020 Friends, sponsors, advertisers, and ticket buyers for their support. My thanks also goes to Jane Clarke for all her photographic work in the production of the printed programme, posters and screen savers; Sue Brereton for Facebook, her organisational skills, and for compiling and sending out the newsletters; and Harry Sanders for making and running the website. For their advice and time, I would like to thank Craig Webb and Mandy Burton at Cotswold House Hotel, Alex O’Donnell at Campden School, and the Music Festival Trustees. Huge gratitude also goes to everyone who has distributed the printed programmes including the CCS Festival Ambassadors. And finally thank you, Ray Lloyd for the wonderful Festival sign that was to have gone outside the front door to the Montrose Suite. It is now reading patiently in the May Festivals Office until 2021.

I have had many understanding and kind messages from authors and publishers. So many people have contributed to this festival it is so sad for it not to be. BUT

More important than anything is that we and our families, friends, and neighbours stay safe so that when this dreadful time is over we can all get out and about and enjoy ourselves once again.

With best wishes,

Vicky Bennett
