We are sorry to inform you ticketholders at such short notice that this event has been cancelled. Arts Taunton the organisers of the Tyca Festival have provided the following statement…
‘We have made the regrettable decision to postpone the Tyca Festival. This has been extremely difficult, and the decision was not taken lightly. We have been discussing the increasing numbers of pupils who are unable to perform due to rising COVID cases and the schools have rightly made the decision to give pupils a 10-day break during half-term to reduce the rising figures. In this light we have made the very tough decision to look for new dates in the new year, so our young people do not lose the opportunity to perform and share their talents.’
Ticketholders are also being contacted by phone and email where possible. Refunds will be automatically processed via the payment method paid with.
