FESTIVAL UPDATE

ORBIT 2020 CANCELLED

NEW 2021 DATE

As government COVID-19 guidelines develop on a daily basis we'd like to update you regarding Orbit 2020.

As you know, ​we are a very small team of full time event organisers who have a duty to protect our young company, our growing festival, our loyal followers and of course our presenters, caterers, traders, sub contractors, staff and volunteers etc. It's heartbreaking speaking to everyone in the events industry effected by this current situation but we all need to stay strong and look to the future.

It is with a heavy heart that we have no alternative but to cancel Orbit 2020. Back in March we believed it was possible to reschedule Orbit to September and combine it with Beardy Folk Festival on the same estate. However, after long discussions, we cannot guarantee it is possible to deliver the quality of event Orbit followers deserve. In terms of experience, layout, logistics and most importantly that feel of exclusivity that we always aim to deliver.

You simply would not enjoy Orbit in the way we promised when purchasing your tickets.

We now need to look to the future and therefore can confirm the dates for next year.

​Orbit Fitness, Running & Yoga Festival
11th to 13th June 2021
Hopton Court
South Shropshire

​After careful consideration, we can now offer FOUR options. Any ticket holders will be emailed with these options.

​1. KEEP YOUR TICKETS
This is of course our preferred option . A simple transfer of any 2020 tickets will be automatically made to the new 2021 date. This means you will also be able to benefit from lower 2020 prices. These will be significantly higher next year.

2. REFUNDS
For those who were not able to take the enforced date change, we can offer a refund (less booking fees) if claimed via email by Friday 31st July 2020. Refunds will be sent out by 31st August. We cannot process any new refund claims after 31st July 2020.

3. TRANSFER
You are more than welcome to sell or transfer your tickets to someone else at any time. We just need the new ticket holders details.

4. CROWDFUNDING

What could you give to help secure the future of Orbit? Our crowdfunding campaign aims to help fill some of the £10,000 hole left in our finances due to the global COVID-19 crisis and cancellation of our 2020 event. Here's a link to our crowdfunding page. www.crowdfunder.co.uk/orbit-fitness-festival
We thank you in advance for any pledges and support.


​As Orbit is not even two years old this year we must do everything possible to preserve our company status and secure our future. After making small strides we're looking forward to staging our very special weekend inside the walled garden at Hopton Court for many years to come.

​Once again, we must add no one in the world was prepared for this and therefore we must have sympathy and full support for each other through these difficult times.
See you next June!"
