We just wanted to update you with some news about the Festival later this year. It is with great sadness that we are announcing today that our Puppet and Creative Ministry Festival won’t be taking place this year. The current restrictions in place for large gatherings and social distancing would not enable us to meet safely and comply with all of the necessary requirements. This coupled with the ongoing uncertainty mean that it just isn’t possible for us to hold the event this year.
We love the Festival in Rugby, it really is the highlight of our year and I know that it is the same for many of you. We are really going miss seeing everyone there, especially as our training days and all of the large Christian events that we would normally attend have all been cancelled too.
For the 2020 Festival we had the largest number of pre-bookings we have ever had. For everyone who has already booked, your tickets will automatically be transferred to next year’s Festival. However, if you would prefer to have a refund that is no problem, simply email us and we will process a full refund for you. If you have any questions, please call us on 01472 241068 or you can email email@example.com
We hope that whilst we can’t meet in October, you will be able to join us as we continue to hold meetings and workshops on Zoom. The Puppet Team Leaders Forum provides leaders the opportunity to get together and share ideas and to encourage each other. The Basic Puppetry, Solo Puppetry and the Producing a Puppet Video sessions have also proved very popular and have had people attending from all over the world, in addition, we have held a number of private workshops as well. We are looking to repeat these and are exploring what other online workshops we could provide in the coming months.
Through this difficult time, we have really appreciated your prayers and your support through all the encouraging emails, comments and donations too. This has enabled us to continue to provide the resources for you and we are totally committed to continue to do this in the future. If there is anything else that we can do to help or support you in your work and ministry, please don’t hesitate to get in touch, we want to do whatever we can to help.
Thank you and God bless
