Coronovirus Update – April Events Cancelled

 

 

MESSAGE FROM DR HELEN RUFUS-WARD

CHAIRMAN – EASTBOURNE ARTS CIRCLE

Dear Members

Following yesterday’s press conference concerning the Coronavirus when the Prime Minister urged people to stay at home (especially those over 70 or those with underlying health issues), I am writing to tell you that the last two of our events have been cancelled.    These are: 3rd April, Friday Film Event – Die Fledermaus, and 17th April, Friday Lecture – The Moon in Art and Science with Dr Alexandra Loske. We have also taken the decision to conduct our AGM on the 17th April as a telephone conference call as our committee can no longer meet in person.  Please see the note below from our treasurer Sir Philip regarding credit notes and refunds for tickets you have already purchased.

This decision to cancel our events has not been taken lightly but the health and safety of our members, guests and committee is of paramount importance to us.  At present we have not cancelled our Summer programme of three events commencing May 2020 (you will have recently received the latest newsletter in the post).  Philip will be acknowledge bookings but will not cash cheques etc until we are certain that these events will go ahead.

It just remains for me to wish you all good health and hope that this period of uncertainty will be over soon.

With all good wishes

Helen

Dr Helen Rufus-Ward

MESSAGE FROM SIR PHILIP ANSON

TREASURER – EASTBOURNE ARTS CIRCLE

 

You will have read our chairman’s message above, regarding the cancellation of our events on 3rd April 2020 and 17th April 2020.

In order to reduce the amount of administration, anybody who holds tickets,  or ticket advices, for these two events will be able to use them as credit notes against purchases for future events in 2020 and 2021, at the postal box office (ie via me), once the Coronovirus emergency has ended.

If this is not acceptable to you, I am of course, happy to make a cheque or credit card refund, depending on the way you originally paid for your tickets. If you want me to do this, please request this in writing via post or email, and I will arrange the relevant refund.

Philip
