[ This is kingdom ]
Firstly we would like to say a heartfelt thank you for sticking with us when the world turned upside down back in March 2020. Your patience and support have been huge sources of energy and comfort during the often intense storminess of the last year.
In truth we have been torn for several months now on whether or not to push forward and try to make Kingdom happen this summer. Whilst we know better times are just on the horizon, we have reached the conclusion that this is not the year to be burdened with the vast strains of launching a new festival. We have therefore decided to postpone Kingdom until more certain times.
Delivering Kingdom to the scale we envisaged was always going to be a big ask and we needed the wind in our sails from day one. Unfortunately, 2021 has not offered us a clean run at it and whilst we know you will share in our disappointment – we have faith you will understand our reasoning.
Later this morning we will also be announcing that our beloved five year old festival, GALA in Peckham Rye Park, is rescheduling from the 29th – 30th May to the weekend of 31st July – 1st August in order to give it the best possible chance of taking place. With the hope that we can still offer you the party you deserve this summer – we would like to invite everyone who bought a Kingdom ticket to transfer the value of your ticket over to GALA (2021 or a later edition) in tickets and/or bar spend.
We would be hugely grateful for your support in moving your ticket across to GALA but full refunds are of course also available for anyone not in a position to do so. Whichever option you would like to take – please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with your ticket details and we will process everything within the next 14 days.
