The 2020 Robert Burns Scottish Festival has been cancelled. Chairperson Dr John Menzies OAM said “that the RBSF Committee met last week and the decision to cancel the Festival which aligns with the Australian Government guidelines on mass gatherings became the catalyst that was the only option we could take. Dr. Menzies said that before making a public announcement we needed to contact all of the Performers, Guest Speakers and providers who had been booked for the 2020 festival.”
We are mindful of the impact of the Covid-19 Virus and the loss of income for our Musicians and providers including our Patrons.
Early Bird Ticket holders will be refunded and our Website will be updated for the duration, the committee will continue to plan the festival for 2021 and appreciate the support given over recent months.
Dr Menzies said, “This is a time for us all to use our strength and compassion to pull together with our local community to lead the recovery process following this unprecedented crisis”.
