Coved-19’s impact upon the arts and culture continued this morning when we were brought the almost inevitable news that this year’s Deer Shed Festival – due to be held at Baldersby Park in North Yorkshire from the 24th to the 26th of July this year – will now not go ahead as originally planned. A statement from the event organisers confirmed this: “It is with sadness that we must now announce the postponement of Deer Shed Festival 11 on safety grounds, due to the ongoing uncertainty surrounding the coronavirus outbreak in the UK.”

 However, in more positive news, the eleventh edition of this hugely popular music, science and arts festival – with its existing theme of Incognito – has been re-scheduled and will now run from July 30th to 1st August next year. All tickets will remain valid for the new dates. Refunds will be available upon request but it is hoped that the majority of existing ticket holders will roll their tickets over into 2021 and by so doing will continue to support this rather wonderful festival as an independent, family owned and run business at this most difficult of times.

Tickets for Deer Shed 11 remain on-sale with a freeze on tier price increases over the summer.

In light of this announcement the organisers have put together a most helpful list of FAQs and these can be found HERE.
