CraftCon2020 is Postponed due to COVID-19

Dear Delegate / Speaker / Panellist / Sponsor / Volunteer

Re: Coronavirus: Postponement of CraftCon 2020

Due to the considerable uncertainty regarding public events and gatherings, and in a bid to help to reduce the speed of spread of Covid 19, we have regrettably decided to postpone CraftCon 2020.

However, such is the momentum and goodwill, we are already looking at potential new dates for later this year with Pershore College. Once we are confident that the Covid surge will have passed and we have the go ahead, we will be in touch to ask if you’re able to confirm your continued involvement.

In the meantime, those who have already purchased tickets and/or accommodation, will be refunded in full through our online ticket system, so please look out for the refund in the coming weeks.

We will ensure that those who had already booked will get the first chance to re-book when the new dates are published.

I realise this will be disappointing news, but probably not unexpected.

You can be assured that all our hard work so far will not be wasted, and we hope to retain as much of the exciting programme and evening events as possible for the new dates! In the meantime, if you have any other thoughts on this or other Three Counties Cider & Perry Association matters, please do get in touch with me or any of our Committee.

Together we will continue to advance the craft of quality cidermaking.

With best wishes – and stay safe.
