Eden Sessions 2020
The Eden Project announced today (April 17, 2020) that the Eden Sessions series of concerts planned for June and July this year will not take place but is being rescheduled for next year.
Organisers have been closely assessing the impacts of the global coronavirus pandemic and decided that to ensure the safety and wellbeing of concert-goers, artists, crews, Eden Sessions staff and supporting teams, the Sessions could not go ahead this year.
When shows are rescheduled and dates confirmed, the Eden Project will contact all existing ticketholders with details. Original tickets will remain valid for any show that is rescheduled.
A spokesperson said today: “We would like to assure all ticketholders that we share their disappointment but we are sure they will understand why the Sessions cannot go ahead this summer.
“We send our heartfelt thanks to everyone for their patience and understanding while we have worked through these unprecedented times to reach this decision. The good news is that the Eden Sessions will be back in the summer of 2021. We are working hard to reschedule artists booked for 2020 to play next year.”
The spokesperson added: “To everyone who was looking forward to this year’s Sessions and to all past and future concert-goers we say thanks so much for supporting the Eden Sessions.
“We send our very best wishes to all and look forward to welcoming everyone back to what promises be an unforgettable season in the summer of 2021.”
With its magical Biomes backdrop, Eden truly is a unique venue – described by the Evening Standard as ‘The nearest you can get to watching a gig on the moon’. The Eden Sessions enter their 19th year in 2020.
