COVID-19 Update

Event Updates

Following the latest announcements of a 10pm closing for bars and venues we announce clarification of our policy.

Events at Durrant Hotel and Unity resort for 2020 will go ahead as planned with a different schedule of entertainment (number of acts will not change).

Unity will feature a festival all-dayer style with bands at 2.30pm, 4.00 pm, 5.30pm, 7.00pm and 8.30pm.

Durrant Hotel will begin with evening meal at 6pm.

We have proved with our Elvis week at Hemsby that events CAN operate in the current climate very successfully.

If you do not wish to attend for ANY reason we have no legal obligation to transfer or refund deposits as the events WILL be going ahead.

We have spent six months transferring deposits and cancelling events and are not in a position to be as flexible as we would normally be, therefore transfers and refunds are NOT possible. Unless you can prove you were part of the original group advised to shield by the government in March, are infected with coronavirus at the time of the event, or are in a local lockdown area at the time of the event that doesn’t allow travel on holidays (most do). In these exceptional circumstances we will look at bookings on an individual basis.

As the 10pm curfew looks a mid-to-long term policy we will all have to learn to adapt and we are certain that our events will be a great success

Hopefully most sensible people will recognise this situation is not of our making and understand our decisions designed to protect the long term viability of our business and livelihoods of the professional musicians we employ.

The above is subject to change based on any government change in its policy.
