Theatre fan convention Stagecon postponed until 2019
The theatre fan convention Stagecon has been postponed until 2019.
The event, which was scheduled to welcome visitors to Shoreditch Town Hall on the weekend of the 2 and 3 November, received criticism from some fans for the high ticket price.
James Yeoburn, the UK general manager for StageCon said: “We have listened to the feedback received in the weeks since launching and recognise that ticket prices and lead time have prohibited many of the most loyal fans from being able to attend. It is important that we acknowledge that feedback, and work with our industry partners to make the requisite changes to allow for greater accessibility.
“We are sorry to not have the chance to share the exciting programme of events and performances developed for November, but look forward to presenting this with ample notice for next year. United Theatrical are delighted to be leading the StageCon that everybody has waited for, including us!”
In a statement, the organisers said they are keen to engage with people who have shared feedback over the initial announcement.
