Postponement of Deer Shed Festival 11 - posted 17.04.2020

Hello Deer Shedders. 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.

But let's remain positive. The new dates will be July 30th - August 1st 2021, and we are putting all of our efforts into ensuring that the re-scheduled event is everything that we'd hoped for and more. Incognito (our massive, site-wide, multi-player spy game) is really shaping up to be something special!

All tickets will remain valid for the new dates. Whilst refunds can be requested by those that need them, by holding onto your ticket you will be supporting Deer Shed as an independent, family owned and run business at this difficult time.

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

We have also put together some FAQs below which should answer any questions that you might have about the postponement.

Until July 2021, then, let's remain positive and stay safe.

Oliver, Kate and the team xx

Frequently asked questions regarding the postponement of Deer Shed Festival 11

Why has Deer Shed Festival 11 been postponed?

Deer Shed 11 has been postponed on safety grounds due to the ongoing uncertainty surrounding the coronavirus outbreak in the UK.

What is the new date for the re-scheduled 2021 event?

The new date for Deer Shed 11 is 30th July - 1st August 2021, well within the school Summer holidays for most local authorities.

I have tickets for Deer Shed 11, what are my options?

You have 2 options.

  • Keep your tickets for the re-scheduled event in 2021. We hope you can support Deer Shed by choosing this option.
  • Request a ticket refund.

Why should I keep hold of my tickets?

Here are some benefits of keeping hold of your tickets and attending in 2021.

  • You will be supporting an independent, family owned and run cultural event in the North of England in what is a very difficult time for the sector.
  • Due to the ticket price tiering the tickets that you currently hold are cheaper than any that you could buy for the re-scheduled festival i.e. tickets for 2021 will cost more than your current tickets should you request a refund and re-purchase at a later date.
  • We intend to entertain our 2021 ticket holders virtually over the summer and beyond.
  • If you can't make the 2021 dates, how about a voucher to 2022?

Will the line-up for the postponed event remain the same?

Where possible yes. We are currently working hard to confirm as much of the current line-up as possible for the new 2021 dates.

Deer Shed 11 was shaping up to be a great festival, we believe it will be worth the wait and we are all looking forward to seeing you in July 2021.

I have decided to keep hold of my Deer Shed 11 tickets, what do I need to do?

Firstly, thank you for supporting us in this way. COVID-19 has put businesses and individuals under a great deal of financial pressure, we really appreciate your continued support.

Regarding your tickets you don't need to do anything. All ticket types bought through Eventbrite (including caravans/campervans/hookups) will remain valid for the re-scheduled event in 2021. We look forward to seeing you then!

Do I need to upgrade my kids tickets if, being a year older, they need a different child ticket type?

No. For existing ticket holders it is the age that your kids were at the time of the original July 2020 date that is important.

I have booked tickets with a glamping supplier, what happens to them?

With the exception of Vintent all glamping bookings will be valid for 2021 should you decide to attend the 2021 re-scheduled event, otherwise you can request a refund direct.

If you booked with Vintents, they will be providing refunds and will be in touch via email.
