EVENT CANCELLED due to COVID19
UPDATE 30 March 2020
Hope you are all staying well and finding plenty to do.
I have just spoken with ATG tickets about the cancelled performance . They are hoping to reschedule the performance for either later this year or sometime in 2021 so are not offering a refund at this point. Once we know the rescheduled date, we can then decide what we want to do.
I’ll keep you posted.
Update - 16 March 2020, 18.30
From ATG Tickets
In response to the Prime Minister’s statement this evening, advising the UK public to avoid unnecessary social contact, including in theatres, we regret to inform you that shows in all Ambassador Theatre Group UK venues are temporarily suspended with immediate effect.
We understand that this decision comes as a disappointment, and a massive inconvenience for those of you already on the way to a venue this evening, but ultimately we all want the same thing: the health and safety of our communities, and we believe this is the correct decision to make.
Given the current ambiguity and lack of clarity as to how long our theatres may be closed for, we hope to provide you with an update within the next 48 hours regarding the exchange of tickets. We will be consulting with industry bodies including the Society of London Theatre and UK Theatre and the government over the immediate future.
For now, we would like to thank you for your understanding and patience, and to recognise the incredible efforts and support of producers, artists, partners and customers over this difficult period.

16 March 2020. To all TSCC members who have booked for the Scenic Scotland tour
Please see below an extract from a question and answer section on the website of Lochs and Glens, the tour organiser.
Question: My holiday is cancelled because the government changes its advice or Lochs and Glens decide not to operate the tour. Does my policy cover me for cancellation?
Answer: No. In the event of the government advising against all travel or all but essential travel then Lochs and Glens Holidays will refund the holiday money that you have paid.
The bad news is of course that, for very good reasons, the government is now advising against all but essential travel so this trip will clearly be cancelled. The good news is that it would appear all monies paid will be refunded.
We will keep you posted.

UPDATE 18 March 2020.
“Dear TSCC Member,
If you have expressed an interest in joining us on our Thames Cruise and/or the Sonning Mill evening this coming June, please read on:
Current government Coronavirus guidance includes the following sentence: Avoid gatherings with friends and family. Keep in touch using remote technology such as phone, internet, and social media
Our Thames Cruise would clearly be just such a gathering.
In the circumstances we have decided to put on hold all planning for this event.
In the unlikely situation that things improve dramatically by the middle of June and government guidance changes we will be in touch again to see if you are interested to join us on what will then become a Celebration Cruise.
We will keep our fingers crossed but not with any great confidence.
Jackie will be contacting those who booked tickets for Sonning Mill with regard to refunds.
Meantime take care and do let us have any thoughts and feedback.”

16 March 2020. To all TSCC members who have booked for the Viking Danube cruise
Please see below an extract from a statement from the Chairman of Viking Cruises on the company’s website. This was written before the government’s advice to avoid all non-essential travel:
For those guests whose cruise falls within this window of suspended operations, we are offering the choice of a Future Cruise Voucher valued at 125% of all monies paid to Viking or a refund equal to the amount paid. Guests will have 24 months to use their Future Cruise Voucher to make a new reservation on any river, ocean or expedition cruise. For additional flexibility, if you are unable to use your voucher, we will automatically send you a refund equal to the original amount paid to Viking after the voucher expires. These Future Cruise Vouchers will also be fully transferable.
The good news is that it would be expected that everyone will receive a 125% future cruise voucher, or a full refund if they prefer this.
We will keep you posted.
