November 2020

Due to the COVID-19 national restrictions announced by the Prime Minister which come into effect on Thursday 5 November, we are unable to present the concerts scheduled for 6-8 November as planned.

We will be in touch shortly to update you with more information if you have booked for one of these concerts.

We are currently working with a reduced administration team and appreciate your patience and understanding at this time.

December 2020

All events due to take place in December were sold without socially distanced seating and due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, these events will no longer be taking place as originally advertised.

All events originally scheduled for December 2020 will either:

Take place with socially distanced seating and adjusted start times
or
Be rescheduled for a later date
or
Be cancelled

Under all of these circumstances, ticket-holders will be given the opportunity to request a refund or a credit for the event(s) they have booked for.

From early November, we will contact all ticket-holders on a concert by concert basis and they will be given a number of options regarding their tickets. Essex’s current COVID alert level is high (tier 2) so we are unable to seat people from different households or bubbles together. We are aware your booking may include members of more than one household or bubble and you will be given the opportunity to split your booking to comply with current guidelines if necessary.

Please check the drop down boxes below for the status of a specific event or look at the FAQs if you have a question for us before you get in touch with us directly. You can email us via info@saffronhall.com or call us on 01799 588545. Our phone lines are open Tuesday-Friday from 9.30am-1pm.

Frequently Asked Questions

I haven’t heard from you about a concert I have tickets for. What should I do?

Before you get in contact with us, please check the above drop down boxes to find the most up to date information about the concert for which you have tickets. If we are still in discussions with the artists about the concert then there’s nothing you need to do – we will be in touch with you directly when we have more information.

If you can see that a concert you have booked for has been postponed or cancelled but you don’t think you have heard from us, please first check your email junk folder, your voicemails and your post then, if you can’t see anything, send us an email on info@saffronhall.com or give us a ring on 01799 588545. We are processing a high number of calls and emails at the moment so please bear with us if it takes a little longer to reply to you than normal.

When will I receive the refund I requested?

We have to process each individual refund by hand and we are working as fast as we can to get these sorted. As long as we have an email address for you, you will receive an automated email when the refund has been processed. We are endeavouring to process all refunds within 30 working days of when they were requested. Once the refund has been processed by us, the money should return to your original payment method within 2-3 days.

What if my concert is postponed but I can't make the new date?

In the email about the new date we will also include a link to an online form where you can request that the value of your tickets be donated to Saffron Hall, converted to Saffron Hall credit or refunded to your original payment method if you are unable to attend the new date. If we don’t have an email address for you we will get in touch by phone or post instead.

Why have I received an email confirming a refund, credit or donation for some tickets in my order, but not others?

We are processing requests for refunds, donations and credits on an event-by-event basis so if you have only seen us process a transaction for your tickets for one event, don’t worry, we will sort out your tickets for the other events as well as soon as we can.

Why did I receive Print at Home tickets for concerts that have already happened or future concerts which I know will be postponed or cancelled?

If there is an amendment to your order – for example, a concert which you have tickets for is rescheduled or your tickets for one event in the order are returned – you will receive the updated Print at Home tickets for the whole order again so you have the most up-to-date tickets all in one place. This is why you may receive tickets for a concert that has already happened – or a concert which is yet to be formally cancelled or postponed.

Why did I receive Print at Home tickets for a concert even though I have requested a refund, credit or donation for that concert?

This happened because we have recently changed the date of the concert on our booking system and, at present, you still have tickets for this event because we have not been able to process your donation, credit or refund yet. Rest assured we have received your request for the value of these tickets to be donated, credited or refunded and we will process that request as soon as we can. You will know when we have processed your request as you will receive an automated confirmation email.
