Saturday 22nd & Sunday 23rd September 2018 – CANCELLED
Pimms & Picnics Garden Party – 10.30am – 5.30pm

“We have sadly had to make the difficult decision to cancel the ‘Pimms & Picnics’ Garden Party this weekend Sat & Sun 22nd & 23rd Sept at Mount Edgcumbe House Country Park.

Unfortunately there is rain and high winds forecast for most of the weekend which will make the event unsafe to run from a health and safety aspect, also because a lot of the entertainment was to take place outside it would not provide the same experience for you as a customer.
We will be emailing all customers who have purchased tickets within the next 24 hours and refunds will be issued.
A Gin & Gift Festival is planned to be hosted on the 10th Nov to make up for any inconvenience and tickets will be available soon.

Once again our sincere apologies for any inconvenience this might cause but the safety of our customers is our main priority. The Miss Ivy Events team…..” www.missivyevents.co.uk
