POSTPONEMENT & REFUNDS
Q: When has the concert been postponed to?
A: Pete Tong and The Heritage Orchestra’s ‘Ibiza Classics’ show has been postponed to Friday 24 June 2022.
Q: What happens to my ticket for the 2021 date?
A: Tickets purchased for the original date will be automatically transferred to the new date of Friday 24 June 2022.
Q: What if I can’t make the new date?
A: If you are unable to attend the new date, please contact your point of purchase and they will issue you with a refund.
Q: Why has the concert been postponed?
A: Despite the planned re-opening of large-scale events on June 21, this ground-breaking concert includes a very large production involving a 65-piece orchestra, taking weeks of rehearsals to perfect a flawless show. The safety of the crew and musicians is paramount, and therefore due to the scale of the concert, the logistics involved with rehearsing with Covid-19 restrictions prior to June 21 are not possible. Pete Tong & The Heritage Orchestra are therefore rescheduling all of their June dates, which unfortunately affects the Franklin’s Gardens show.

A: Tickets are on sale now for the new date HERE.
