It is with heavy hearts that the WLF organising committee takes the necessary steps today to cancel the 2021 festival, Silver Lining.
The government’s decision to extend lockdown for a further week makes it impossible for us to continue planning and promotion with any confidence. And sadly it is not possible for us to present the festival in any other way.
All existing bookings will be refunded for the 2021 festival and our ticketing partner – Hobson Bay tickets will be processing all refunds in the coming days. Please allow time for these refunds to be processed.
The committee thanks the festivals’ sponsors for their support and those patrons who bought tickets.
We also thank the festival guests who had made commitments to be with us on 18-20 June and apologise for any inconvenience.
One bright spot is that we will be judging the entries in the Ada Cambridge and Jennifer Burbidge writing prizes and making a public announcement of the winners online. The presentation details will be announced in coming days, and all entrants and current ticket holders will be advised by email.
