As OLX 2020 takes place at the end of June we’re hopeful that any restrictions on public gatherings will be lifted and we can run our event in some form. However, the pandemic has reduced our incoming bookings to nothing at a time when we’d usually expect to make most of our sales and it’s doubtful we’ll be able to meet our costs as the event currently stands. In the event that we do decide to cancel, we are fortunate to be in a position to offer a *full refund*. 

Our final decision will be made before the 25th April. The full refund will still be available for anyone who books from now until we make our decision, so if, like us, you’re hopeful our event can go ahead, you can book a ticket risk-free.

Even if we are forced to cancel our event as it currently stands we hope to be able to run a more limited event, probably a single day incorporating a picnic/tea party and an evening social with live music, for as low a price as possible. Thank you everyone for your understanding, and we look forward to hosting you on an Oxford dance floor very soon.
