Statement : Hospitality At Heaven : Friday 28th November 2008
We sincerely regret to have to announce that this event has been cancelled.
Heaven Nightclub was sold by its previous owners on 20th September. Whilst we always understood through discussions with the new owners that our November event would be going ahead as planned, they have now decided with just two weeks to go, to cancel the event.
We have done everything possible to try and make the event happen. As soon as we knew about the sale of the venue, our mission was always to see through one final amazing Hospitality event at Heaven. Exhaustive attempts to resolve the situation with the owners, even by instructing lawyers, has proved fruitless. We have also been pursuing all the last minute alternative venues available to us, but we feel have been left with no option but to announce the cancellation. We feel very strongly that a scaled-down version of this event, at an inferior venue would be a cynical move, not in keeping with the ethos of Hospitality – and is therefore not an option.
Having poured all our hard work and love into Hospitality over the years we are absolutely devastated to have to cancel an event for the first time. Rest assured, Hospitality will return to the capital in 2009 – bigger and stronger than ever. We will continue to work hard to make sure every event we run is the very best it can be. Everyone who purchased a ticket for Friday 28th November will, of course, be refunded in full, and we can only apologise for any inconvenience caused.
Please email any further queries to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will respond to each one as promptly as possible.
Chris, Tom, Tony, and the Hospital Team.
