“Ticket holders who booked online via Eventbrite will receive notification of a full refund. Ticket holders who booked with Ask Inspire or in a library and who left contact details will be contacted about their refund. These ticket holders will not need to contact us or venues directly.

“If you are a ticket holder who did not leave us any contact details, please contact Ask Inspire about your refund, preferably via email to help us manage the extra volume of enquiries at this time. Email Call us on 01623 677 200 only if you are unable to contact us by email.
