Very sad news from Red Rooster Festival 😢Dearest Roosters,

We are heartbroken to announce that Red Rooster Festival 2020 will not be proceeding 4th-6th September.

After West Suffolk Council and the Emergency Services wanted to support our 300 page health and safety plan to keep you safe, Public Health England have failed to engage with us and without their response and approval we cannot move forward.

The Red Rooster team has worked tirelessly, since the government gave the green light to outdoor events three weeks ago, to produce a safe and socially distanced festival. The live music and DJ programme had been re-booked and we were ready to announce today. We passionately believed we would be the shining beacon to help get the UK live music industry back on the road and are bitterly disappointed this is not happening.

Please read full statement here: www.redrooster.org.uk

The postponement of September 2020 has significantly increased our costs on what was already a very financially challenging year. If you can roll over your ticket to next year it will be a huge support to the festival and greatly appreciated. All tickets will be automatically reissued for 3rd-5th June 2021.

We look forward to welcoming you to Euston Hall in June next year for another epic party!

Love & Respect,
Red Rooster HQ

We so understand where you are Miniature Donkeys for Wellbeing. Survival in so called 'normal' times is difficult when you are not in receipt of regular funding but in this strange, ever-changing landscape we live in it is so hard. If you can support local business, community groups anything you can afford to then please do, your help and support now is so important ❤️We’ve had some bad news. The only support fund that we found, that we were eligible for, that was specifically for small social enterprises and charities that have lost unrecoverable income. MD put in an application, as usual, sweated buckets, stayed up late, was ruthlessly honest about our financial situation, asked for a sum that was nowhere near what we have lost , but that took into account our very modest reserves. Email received yesterday, we are very sorry..... completely oversubscribed.... having to turn down so many deserving applications....... cannot provide any feed pack due to the volume of applications we are having to turn down.

MD has also gone back to the Lottery to tell them how well the Activity Packs are going down, and to ask if there is any way we could get a little more money to get another 500 packs out as the demand is so high. Nope - really pleased with what we’ve done but only one application per organisation- so much demand, fund is oversubscribed.

MD has also gone through her local counci’s discretionary grant scheme again and again, and Minidonks does not qualify.

MD is a little bit broken now. Weeks of little sleep waiting for Saffy to foal, the constant pressure of trying to plan against an ever moving set of targets. Can’t face putting out any more posts asking people who have already supported us to put their hands in their pockets again. Can’t face going through all our photos, looking at the people we have visited, looking at the difference we make to people’s lives. Can’t face Facebook for a while.....

Taking a break to regroup, recover, rethink. Any news on Saffy we’ll let you know. Everyone will be safe and taken care of...... MD just needs a few days off.

Update: thank you all for your kind comments and suggestions. Yes,we have a crowdfunding page, www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/minidonks?utm_term=peyaAWEE8

Yes, you can sponsor a donkey, see our website, www.minidonks.org.uk

I didn’t put these details in the original post because everyone is struggling and I don’t want to keep asking the same people to keep putting their hands in empty pockets. But as so many people have asked how they can help I have put the links here. Thank you.
