It is with great regret that we are going to cancel forthcoming SFD events: The County Drama Festival, scheduled for this coming weekend, The David Beach Youth Awards Evening and the Cinderella Trophy Awards evening have all been cancelled following government advice to avoid public gatherings, including theatres. Where possible we will refund monies and you should contact your coordinator for further details and advice.
We may be able to hold elements of the County Drama Festival at some time in the future. For the awards evenings, we are exploring the possibility of a live streaming the announcements of the award winners on Facebook, with a follow up later in the year when we will visit groups on their club nights to present trophies and certificates. We are still working out the details so watch this space!
SFD Chairman Sam Allen said, “These are unprecedented circumstances and we, like everyone else, are trying to find the best way to safeguard everyone’s health and at the same time ensure we keep all our activities going. The cancellation of these events will be very disappointing for everyone concerned but we are convinced it is the right thing to do in the circumstances. Live streaming the awards will not be the same as being there but it is the next best thing! It should be fun!”
We will publish further details when we have them.
