PRESS RELEASE - Event Cancelled.

It is with a heavy heart that the organising committee of the Kimbolton Campout have had to announce the cancellation of the Kimbolton Campout for 2013 and for all future years.

The reasons for our cancellation are firstly we received far fewer advance bookings than we expected and that we were contacted a couple of weeks ago by the school who informed us that they want to increase the hall hire fee by 50%. This of course was unacceptable, especially as it was 6 months after we started advertising the event. On top of this are the austerity busting increases in the nightly charges for camping, imposed last year. The combination of these reasons made it impossible for us to carry on. In our opinion we could not expect our loyal dancers to bear this increase, and as this weekend is no longer financially viable we are left with no alternative but to close. 

We are very sorry for all those disappointed by this decision and would like to reassure you that all deposits made will be repaid as soon as possible.
