Story

DEAR STARGAZERS, we are sorry to ask in this difficult time but we need your help.

Underneath the Stars festival in Yorkshire is cancelled for 2020 due to the coronavirus / covid-19 pandemic. We have made the difficult decision to postpone this year’s festival and run again in 2021.

We take the safety and health of our wonderful artists, guests, staff, volunteers and community very seriously and taking into account recent government announcements and all the uncertainty about when restrictions might be lifted, we believe this is the right thing to do.

The postponement is a blow for our not-for-profit organisation. Our fundraising target reflects the direct cost to the organisation of the postponement and taking this pause for a year. Our directors work on a volunteer basis and whilst we have limited our financial exposure as far as possible, we had already made investment in the 2020 event and infrastructure, as well as having ongoing day-to-day running costs.

We will continue to revise the target downwards to take into account our off-line donations and other funds raised or secured. Rest assured that all monies donated will be put straight back into sustaining and ensuring the future of the festival.

This campaign forms part of a broader fundraising effort and we are looking to apply for help through multiple sources. We firmly believe this is a pause, not a cancellation. With your support and our determination, we will be back in 2021 shining brighter than ever before!

Underneath the Stars Festival is run by a Community Interest Company and we are dedicated to providing a diverse range of high quality music and performing arts, in a fair, inclusive and sustainable manner. We are committed to bringing music, creativity, culture and joy to our cosy corner of South Yorkshire. We cannot do this without you.

Whatever you can spare, will make a big difference. And if you can’t afford to donate directly, sharing this plea further will assist us greatly.

We’ll definitely miss you and look forward to meeting with you again Underneath the Stars in 2021!
