Refund Process for The British Invasion

As you are well aware, April 4, 2020, was to have been a very special night at the Porcupine Dante Club. However, because of the Covid-19 pandemic, this event, along with other public gathering in Canada, had to be cancelled in the interest of public safety. 

The organizers of “The British Invasion” have not forgotten about ticketholders but have been busy trying to coordinate another date for this event. This has proven to be a difficult task as we try to find mutually acceptable dates for both the band and the Dante Club but, more importantly, determine when the province and the country will return to some semblance of normal and allow large gatherings once more.

Based upon the information we have received, we have booked “The British are Coming… Again” for April 10, 2021. For all paid ticketholders, the Dante club is offering three (3) options. 

Option A – A full refund. Should ticketholders wish for a full refund, please contact Dominic Flaminio at the Porcupine Dante Club at 705 -264-3185during regular business hours, Monday to Friday.  Ticketholders wanting a refund must return their ticket stubs. Please contact Dominic prior to May 21 and all cheques will be ready for pick up either on May 28 or 29.

Option B – Keep your ticket for next year’s show. Should ticketholders wish to retain their tickets, they can be redeemed for next year’s show with no additional charges. If there is any indication the pandemic is not under control before next year’s date, the Dante Club will cancel the show outright and reimburse all ticketholders at that time.

Option C – Donate ticket funds to the Dante Club. Should ticketholders wish to help the Dante Club during this unexpected and unprecedented business interruption, tickets can be returned and refunds donated the club to help offset financial losses. All donations will be recognized by the Dante Club on our website and social media. Those who donate their refunds will be given advanced notice to purchase their tickets and to choose their table for the April 2021 show.

Whatever option works best for you, works best for the Porcupine Dante Club. We thank you for support in the past and we hope we can continue to count on you as we navigate the future.

Thank you.
