Music Camps 2021 Cancellation
With great regret we are sorry to announce that the 2021 Music Camps will not be able to go ahead.
We realise what a disappointment this will be for campers and families. We have had to consider all the factors, risks and specific issues in making camps covid safe, and the uncertainties and risks that are still there around the Government ‘roadmap’ dates for easing restrictions. All these make it impossible to effectively plan for the 2021 Music Camps with any certainty.
Rather than keeping everyone hanging on with no guarantees we would be able to hold camps, it is better to make a clear decision now and allow people to plan their summer differently.
We have also reached the point where there would not be enough lead-in time to put everything in place, having to commit to significant costs with no guarantee that we would be able to go ahead.
The lockdown and restrictions have also impacted on our hosts Pipers Corner School. The knock-on impacts and the continuing uncertainty means that, with regret, they are not able to host the camps this Summer. We know from our previous experience of sourcing a new location for Camps back in 2019 that it would be almost impossible to find a suitable alternative site in the timescale we have, even if we were confident camps could go ahead.
Our focus now will be on 2022 and re-launching camps, as well as working towards other music opportunities for young people as soon as we are able to offer them.
We hope you all stay safe and well and that we see as many of you as we can in 2022.
