London Eurovision Party have announced that this year’s event has been cancelled. This follows the news that the venue which usually holds the event, Café De Paris has closed down.
The organisers said on Twitter:
Presently we do not know what will happen to Café de Paris, or if this venue will even remain as an entertainment space in the future- it is just too early to tell. Unfortunately this has impacted us resulting in further large financial losses to us as organisers… Many of you have been extremely kind, supportive and understanding in your messages to us, emails, DMs, tweets and texts- and have asked how you can support us or even help recoup some of our losses…
Regarding refunds, the organisers say:
We will now instruct Ticketweb to process refunds to all of those with valid tickets. For those of you that had requested refunds previously, these were already processed via Ticketweb. You should expect to see the refund on your credit card/bank statement within 3-5 working days…
Regarding a possible return, the organisers have said:
We would love to be in a position to say we ‘will’ return in 2022, but sadly with our large financial losses and uncertainty of a venue that meets our requirements, we are not in a strong enough position to say this yet. We will make a further announcement in regards to a 2022 event later this year.
