💛💙💛SCALLYWAG PARTY 2020 POSTPONED UNTIL 2021💙💛💙
We hope everyone is doing as well as possible in these tough times, the scallywag family are sending you all the love and solidarity, wherever in the world you may be right now.
So, it is with the deepest regret that, due to the disruption caused by the COVID-19 virus, we have no option but to postpone the Scallywag Party 2020 until the 16 - 19th July 2021. We've been closely monitoring advice from scientists, the UK government, the events industry and timelines from abroad and we are in no doubt that it is now impossible for us to deliver the event that we have promised at any point this summer. We have worked harder than ever this year to make 2020's party our greatest event so far and it breaks our heart to not be able to share it with you. The safety of our crew, performers, ticket holders and our wider community is at the core of this decision and we hope you totally understand and support us in this both now, and moving forward.
TICKETS FOR 2021 and REFUNDS
As you all know so well, the Scallywag Party is a grassroots community of creatives and lovers of live music. A truly independent festival that has enhanced the lives of many and spread a whole lot of love and joy in the process. We need your support now more than ever and the best way for ticket holders to help us to continue to blossom is to simply do nothing and let your tickets roll over to next year's event which will be held on 16 - 19th July 2021.
If you can't afford to carry your ticket over to next year's event, you will be entitled to claim a refund minus booking fee. All tickets holders should have already received an email from us with instructions on how to claim a refund, please private message us if you have not yet received this message.
So our main festival has been postponed and we will continue to put our heart and soul into stepping it up further to put on a gathering to better all previous Scallywag Parties in 2021. Tickets for the next big instalment will go on sale late summer.
In the meantime we will continue to monitor social distancing regulations and if the opportunity presents itself, we are mobilised and primed to run a smaller event at short notice on our brand new festival site later this summer. We are building a great relationship with the land manager of our new site who is a lovely man and happy for us to use the land for a small gathering if the opportunity presents itself. All ticket buyers for the 2020 festival will get messaged first with the opportunity to snap up the strictly limited tickets for the Scally Camp, if it becomes viable…watch this space!
But for now, stay safe, take care of yourself, your family, your loved ones, your neighbours and the wider community. Best of luck finding a new path in our rapidly changing landscape and we are truly and desperately looking forward to big hugs and lots of dancing in a field with all our favourite people to awesome live music at some point in the very near future.
Stay strong Scallywags and we'll see you with bells on, on the other side.
All the love, Duncan, Darren, Liz and all at Scallywag HQ.
*SCALLYWAG PARTY 2020 INFO*
Welcome to the SCALLYWAG PARTY round four - it's good times a plenty as we embark on our biggest and best event to date! Expect awesome live music, family friendly vibes, laughter, smiles, chilled days, magic nights, tomfoolery and togetherness...
It's the SCALLYWAG PARTY 2020!
We are so excited to be doing it all over again. We've found a brand new beautiful location in East Sussex that gives us a little more space to spread our wings. It's the perfect new home for us, and it also enables us to gently grow a little in the coming years. It's a little way from our 2019 West Country site but we're confident it'll be well worth travelling the extra miles.
We're working hard to put together another belter of a line up for you this year. As always, there will be some acts you will know and some acts you will not, but in true Scallywag Party style expect to be entertained, enlivened and enlightened!
>>>LOCATION. We're so happy to have secured a brand new and beautiful space for the Scallywag Party 2020 in East Sussex between Crowborough and Tunbridge Wells! It's a certified organic site of special scientific interest for it's 167 species of lichens, 22 species of dragonflies and 60 species of breeding birds so it's a very special place indeed and we can't wait to introduce it to you all.

>>> SITE ETHICS. We're again investing in a number of site improvements to make your stay in the park comfortable, and to lower our overall environmental impact. We're planning to bring back our chemical free COMPOST TOILETS, RECYCLING POINTS and to only use COMPOSTABLE PLATES AND HOT DRINKS CUPS, WOODEN CUTLERY and REUSABLE ECO DRINKS GLASSES. In addition to this, we are recruiting double the amount of stewards, recycling and site crew so hopefully everything will run smoother than ever. We can’t wait!
>>> PLEASE NO OPEN FIRES or DISPOSABLE BBQs ANYWHERE ONSITE. We are blessed to be holding our event on an organic SSSI site, and the scallywag party will be billed for any damage caused, including scorches and burns to the grass, as all repairs have to be made by registered organic grounds people. There will be a great communal fire pit to warm yourselves by. Free standing BBQs are allowed for cooking on as long as they are off the grass and the ashes disposed of in the landfill bin once fully cooled.
>>> PLEASE DON'T BRING GLASS, DOGS or SOUND SYSTEMS ON SITE. Our license is dependent on a strict noise management plan, though acoustic jams will run late. But please NO DEMBES, DRUMS, PERCUSSION or BASS after midnight. Thank you in advance for being respectful of this.
>>> OUR SITE is a very special and beautiful space and the festival we create is a welcoming and safe place for everyone including families and children. For your safety, a security team will be present onsite. We trust you understand what is cool and what is not, and as with all festivals, ANY ANTISOCIAL AND/OR ILLEGAL ACTIVITY WILL NOT BE TOLERATED. In any instance of this trust being broken, any inappropriate behaviour will be dealt with nicely but firmly and swiftly. Thank you for keeping our previous 3 festivals so amazing and such very safe spaces to enjoy for all. We really appreciate your help in making 2020's event equally brilliant.
>>> PHOTOGRAPHY. Official photographers and film crews will be onsite and by attending the event, you give permission for photographic material to be used for promotional purposes. If you do not wish images of yourself or anyone in your family to be captured, please make it clear to the photographers as they approach.
