WHITBY KRAMPUS RUN VI IST HIBERNATING
As you all know we were keeping an eye on Covid developments from the start and aren’t at all surprised that with increased infections and the new restrictions especially the ‘rule of 6’ there were implications for public events and no indications at the present time of how long those restrictions will last
For certain it was already no longer possible to hold the Krampus Ball.
There was the potential of a ticketed outdoor aspect to the weekend which we were looking into for the parade to safely control numbers, but unfortunately this also is not going to be possible within the current restrictions, limited funding and the number of volunteers required to make it work.
We are aware that people have booked accommodation so if it helps for those wanting a refund, as much as we regret to say, we can confirm that Whitby Krampus Run as an official public event and parade is now cancelled for 2020
For those of you who are still considering on making the journey to Whitby we are looking into possibilities and appearances which comply with all regulations safely. Taking us back to the original inception and roots of Krampus.
More details to follow but there will be lots of opportunities to join in with the creative mischief of the Old Horned Ones online and special appearances. There will also be a way of doing a virtual event and we hope for more in real life. Plus a range of this years merchandise that sales will really help to fund the event and ongoing expenses
Meanwhile continue making things of wonder, beauty and wildness in fellowship for surely we shall get through this together with the spirit of our ancestors...who faced this sort of challenge regularly...and without social media.
We shall be sharing what we have been up to as things are nearing completion so looking at ways to continue with collaborating however it can be made possible.
Join in the dance.
