We are sorry to announce that in light of the escalation of the UK government’s response to COVID 19 (Coronavirus) we have made the difficult decision to cancel LFDF, due to take place in June 2020. This includes the EMPERIS breakout event set to take place on the 5th June 2020.
Given the uncertainty of how this unknown virus will play out over the next few months, and with the UK peak expected at the end of May/beginning of June, we felt we had little choice. As well as minimising our financial risks, we want our event to be fun and not compromised by our concern over our attendees’ health and wellbeing.
We are also conscious of international travellers having attracted attendees from as far as the US, Japan and Austalia in the past 2 years. Given the travel bans that have already been put in place, it is likely that international movement is going to be difficult for some time.
If you have already purchased a ticket then you have the option to carry it forward to 2021 (yes we will be BACK!) or to contact us for a refund (firstname.lastname@example.org). We will also carry the ROYALS theme over to next year.
We extend our apologies to all those who have purchased tickets as well as our sponsors and vendors, especially those who have booked flights and hotels. We hope you understand how difficult this decision has been for us and that you will continue to support us in 2021.
We will announce any further news going forward so please keep an eye on our website and social media channels.
Furthermore, in these difficult times, please look after yourself and those close to you.
Simon, Claudio, Ibrahim & Kim
