On Saturday 30th May, in place and in honour of the planned gathering, I will be streaming an online celebration of music and stories.
The point of doing this is firstly to provide a positive and enjoyable (virtual) gathering and a connection point for everyone and anyone. Secondly, I would also love this to be an opportunity to generate some support for the artists and contributors booked for that evening - via donations from you. Any one working in the arts is sure to be finding it hard right now. For many, the summer festival season is the main earning period for the whole year. We also have no idea when restrictions on public gatherings (ie: any real performance opportunities) will lift. So we have to do what we can to keep the flame burning and keep the arts alive.
Refunds / Postponements / Donations
For those who have already purchased a ticket for the event, I would like to offer your a few options here. Details below;
Donate your ticket money to the 30th May 2020 Jaminaround artists.
Hold your booking for the next Jaminaround event
Email for a refund of your ticket money.
Please contact jam_in_a_round (at) yahoo.co.uk stating clearly your preferred option.
If requesting a refund, they will be made directly back to the paypal account that made the purchase. In a gesture of solidarity, you also have the option to specify partial refund with a partial contribution to the artists. This is only a suggestion, I understand that many of you will be struggling from loss of earnings too and won't feel you can manage that.
*unfortunately the etickets website booking fee will not be refunded, (they've already taken it) it will just be the ticket money. Sincere apologies. As a token of my gratitude for your support of the event, I could offer an equivalent discount on a future Jaminaround booking for those who request it.
If you would like to hold on to your ticket for the next event, which (lock-down permitting) could still happen on 12th September 2020 or more likely May 29th 2021, let me know and then sit back and look forward to that glorious day in the future!
(I can't guarantee that I will be able to re-create the same the line-up of artists for the next event.)
Of course, if you didn't yet purchase a ticket for the original event, that doesn't exclude you from contributing and joining in on the 30th!
J A M I N A R O U N D - 30th May is now cancelled.
Details of what to do if you have purchased a ticket are outlined below.
Planned events in 2020
Jaminaround tickets can be purchased from the ticket site (hosted by eTickets). Follow the 'buy tickets' links on each events page. Tickets are in the form of a code, redeemable on entry against your name. There are separate tickets for each event, or, for the first time, a 'Season ticket' for all three events.
