Important announcement about Midlands Whisky Festival 2020

It’s been a difficult time for us all these past months and we’d like to thank all ticket holders for your patience and support while we have continued to evaluate and explore every option.

After a full review of the latest Government advice, we regret to have to let you know that together Nickolls & Perks and Midlands Whisky Festival have made the decision to cancel this year’s festival.

MWF 2021 will take place on one day only, Saturday 11th September 2021. All Saturday ticket holders for the 2020 festival are eligible for a refund or the chance to transfer their booking to next year’s festival. Sunday and Weekend ticket holders will be automatically refunded, and we kindly advise that you contact us should you wish to re-book for 2021, so we can secure your Early Bird pricing.

If you choose to defer your ticket to 2021, you will be helping Midlands Whisky Festival come back even stronger next year. All ticket holders will be emailed shortly, and Saturday ticket holders will be given the option to either cancel or defer their tickets to 2021.

Once again, on behalf of Nickolls & Perks and Midlands Whisky Festival, we’d like to thank you all for your patience and continued support. It hasn’t been an easy decision for us, but we firmly believe it’s the right one.

We look forward to seeing you again and sharing a dram with you very soon.


What do I do if I have a Saturday 2020 ticket?

Your ticket will automatically be transferred to 2021, so there is no need to do anything should you wish to join us at next year’s festival. If you do not wish to attend, please contact us to request a refund.

What do I do if I have a Sunday or Weekend 2020 ticket?

We have already actioned a refund for you (actioned 22nd July). If you wish to join us at next year’s festival with Early Bird pricing (£40 per ticket instead of £45), please contact us with your original booking ID and we will happily arrange this for you.

How long will it take to receive the refund in my account?

Refunds can take up to 21 working days, depending on your bank. Please contact us if you haven’t received a refund after this period and our team will look into this for you.

If you think there’s something we haven’t answered, please send us an email to info@whiskyfest.co.uk and we will do our best to respond as quickly as possible.
