Kirkwood Hospice’s Open Air Cinema postponed due to severe weather conditions

Kirkwood Hospice is sad to announce that our Open Air Cinema screenings, which were due to take place later today (Saturday 10th August), have been postponed due to the severe weather conditions we are currently experiencing. The reason for the postponement is due to the high winds, which has made the event unsafe for guests.

The following screenings were due to take place in the grounds of Ravensknowle Park:

Saturday 10th August 2019 at 3pm: The Greatest Showman

Saturday 10th August 2019 at 8pm: Bohemian Rhapsody

Kathryn Box, Events Organiser at Kirkwood, said: “We’re devastated to have to cancel our Open Air Cinema showings this weekend. The event is completely sold out and we’ve been looking forward to welcoming all our guests for what was all set to be a brilliant family event.

“The Open Air Cinema is a brand new event for Kirkwood, helping us to raise vital funds to care for people affected by life limiting illnesses locally. To have to cancel at this late stage is absolutely heart-breaking.”

“Our main priority at events is always the safety of supporters, volunteers, suppliers and employees, and with terrible conditions the risk was simply too high to allow us to go ahead with the screenings.”

“We know that many of our guests will be disappointed that we’ve had to cancel. We’ve been working hard all morning to find an alternative date and I am delighted to say that we have been able to rearrange the Open Air Cinema screenings for Saturday 28th September.

“If you have booked tickets for either showing we hope you’ll want to join us in September instead. All tickets will be valid for the new date and we’ll transfer these automatically.

“We understand that this won’t be right for everyone, so we will offer a full refund to anyone who would prefer this option.”

If you’d like us to transfer your ticket(s) to the new date, you don’t need to do anything. We’ll take care of everything for you! If you would like a refund, you can request this by contacting the Fundraising team on: 01484 557911 or by emailing: events@kirkwoodhospice.co.uk

If you would prefer to receive a refund, please let us know by Friday 23rd August. After this date we may not be able to provide a refund.

If you have any further questions, please check our Facebook page or contact the Fundraising team.
