'ALL STAR TRIBUTE EVENING TO JOE LONGTHORNE MBE’ - NEW EASTER SUNDAY 2021 DATE DUE TO COVID 19 CRISIS

It has been decided to postpone this event from Sunday 31st May 2020 to Easter Sunday 4th April 2021, in view of the current Government restrictions due to the Covid 19 pandemic. The organisers have made this decision with a heavy heart, however, in the interest of everyone’s well being and safety, they feel it is the best move to make.
Easter Sunday next year seems a good date to choose, hopefully a sense of new normality will be in place by then, and Joe always loved to perform in Blackpool and looked forward to his Easter concerts here.
All existing tickets will be carried forward to this new date and we do hope you will all be able to attend and celebrate Joe’s life and career.
Refunds will be available for those who are unable to make the new date by emailing TicketSource direct at support@ticketsource.co.uk with your booking reference and full name and address.
