"Joint statement from Dart RNLI and The Flavel Arts Centre re-"An evening with David Dimbleby."
Unfortunately, the restrictions relating to public performances during the COVID-19 pandemic has meant that The Flavel is unable to stage live performance for the foreseeable future.
We have therefore reluctantly taken the decision to cancel the proposed “Evening with David Dimbleby” on 2nd October 2020, the event having already been postponed once.
Whilst we hope to stage the event in the future, it is not likely to be until next year, and understandably David feels that he is unable to commit to a date at present even though he is very anxious, as a patron of Dart RNLI, to support it if possible.
We are conscious that many of our supporters have already bought tickets for the event, and we feel it right therefore to offer ticket holders the option of either making a donation of their ticket value as a joint contribution to both organisations or requesting a refund.
Please only reply to this email if you would like to request a refund. If you would like to donate your ticket please do not reply.
We apologise for the inconvenience and disappointment this decision will cause but we are sure you will agree that the health and safety of everyone must be paramount at this difficult time.
