13 March 2020
A number of our performers are understandably becoming concerned due to the constantly evolving COVID-19 outbreak; this means that we can no longer deliver the programme we had planned, so we have taken the difficult decision to postpone the Hippodrome Silent Film Festival 18-22 March 2020 (HippFest).
While we are disappointed that our 10th anniversary edition will not go ahead next week, we intend to reschedule in late October 2020. We send apologies to you all – our audiences, supporters, partners, guests, volunteers and staff and look forward to welcoming everyone at this later date.
Tickets will be refunded in full. If you booked tickets online, they will be automatically refunded. If you bought tickets via the box office, please contact us directly for a refund. We would be grateful for your patience at this busy time while our colleagues attend to the necessary tasks.
Please be assured Falkirk Community Trust venues remain open for ‘business as usual’ and there will be screenings at the Hippodrome over the Festival dates 18th – 22nd March and beyond. The replacement screening programme for the Hippodrome will be posted on our website early next week.
