Let's just forget about 2020!
is Australia's premier LGBT+ New Year's Eve cocktail party held annually on the rooftop of the Museum of Contemporary Art at Circular Quay.
Due to the current Covid-19 situation in Australia, the 12th Celebration NYE party has been postponed to 31st December 2021.
Whilst we are very keen to run the event, the current government restrictions and guidelines, and associated Covid-19 risks, make producing a successful and safe event this year unviable. As demonstrated by the recent Adelaide outbreak, both the viruses behaviour and government responses are somewhat unpredictable and this actions have the ability to completely shut us down with little notice. As seen, the action of one individual can have drastic consequences. There is simply too much risk and unknowns for us to be able to safely and successfully operate the event.
What Happens Next?
In the first instance, we will transfer all ticket purchases from this year's event to next year's event. If guests are unable to attend next year's event, we will offer a company credit voucher that can be used on any of our other events or tours, such as Gay Ski Week Australia, or one of our virtual Speakeasy Sessions, for example. The voucher can also be used for a future Celebration NYE party (within a reasonable time frame). With a likely increase in costs for next year's event, ticket holders from this year won't have to pay any more for NYE21/22, and will be able to purchase additional tickets at the same price as what they purchased this year.
The ability for us to transfer your tickets to next year is incredibly important. It allows us to have security and confidence in producing next year's event, and guaranteeing a great time for all. As a small business, your purchases allow us to keep the lights on and the wheels turning, as we work not only on Celebration NYE, but also on fabulous new domestic touring products and more face-to-face and virtual events.
We are working to have Celebration NYE21/22 on sale in early January and will again be offering a deposit ticket/payment plan for initial sales.
