Following government advice about Coronavirus, we made the decision to postpone the 74th Llangollen International Musical Eisteddfod in July 2020. The format of Llangollen 2021 will depend on the public health situation and government requirements for the holding of mass events. At the current time the government have yet to issue guidance for festivals but we are planning to go ahead and will try to make our application process as flexible as possible to enable participants to attend.
TICKET HOLDER FAQs
(Scroll down for Participant FAQs)
I still have tickets for Llangollen 2020, how should I contact you about a refund/rescheduling?
During lockdown, most of our staff have been on furlough and those who are working are doing so from home. As restrictions start to ease, we hope to come together again soon, however, at the moment we are still working remotely. In April, we contacted ticket holders via email and have been working our way through ticket enquiries and refunds. If you have been trying to get in touch with us, please bear with us. You can either message us on social media or email firstname.lastname@example.org
If I can’t make the rescheduled date in 2021, am I entitled to a full refund?
You’re entitled to a full ticket refund back to your original payment method (for cash, cheque or expired cards we will contact you to arrange alternative payment options). However, please note, the refund will be for the ticket price only as any additional costs such as postage and commission fees are non refundable. This is because we have already paid the charges incurred by processing your original order or posting out your tickets.
I have tickets booked via a ticket agent (Ticketmaster, Gigantic) who will contact me around refunds or exchanges?
All tickets purchased via agents will be dealt with via the agent directly. We are working with our partners and you should receive information from the relevant agents of the postponement and next steps.
