RIDGEFEST UPDATE

Thank you for your continued support of Ridgeview. We want to give you an update regarding our 3rd Annual RIDGEFEST, due to take place on Saturday 29th August 2020.

Throughout these challenging times, we have been cautiously optimistic about the possibility of hosting our festival and hoped it was something we could all look forward to. We have been closely monitoring the UK Government Covid-19 guidelines and it is now clear to us that we won’t be in a position to host RIDGEFEST this year. With a heavy heart, we must take the difficult decision to reschedule this year’s event.  In making this decision, we have prioritised your health and safety, as well as that of our incredible vendors, artists, staff, and crew.

We can confirm that RIDGEFEST will be back on Saturday 28th August 2021 and we will be making the most of the extra time to bring you a festival that is bigger and better than ever before!

Existing ticket holders need not do anything – we will work behind the scenes to update your tickets over the coming weeks and be in touch. Transferring your ticket will mean that you are guaranteed entry to RIDGEFEST 2021at 2020 prices. Early-bird and general release tickets for 2020 sold out in record time, so there is no need to miss out.

In better news, we are working on plans to welcome you back to Ridgeview very soon. Hopefully, it also won’t be long before you can enjoy our locally sourced picnic hampers by the vines, or a glass of sparkling in the sun in our Ridgeview Wine Garden. As restrictions lift, we will be phasing our reopening in a safe and socially-distant way so if you don’t already receive our newsletters, sign up here to remain up to date on everything going on at the estate.

We really can’t thank you all enough for your continued support and enthusiasm for our amazing RIDGEFEST and we hope to share a glass of fizz in the sunshine with you very soon.

If you have any questions or wish to request a refund, please contact retail@ridgeview.co.uk. Please note: Refund requests will be accepted for the next 4 weeks (before Sunday 12th July 2020).

Stay safe,

The Ridgeview Team
