Cheers Boris, crying now x

Boris Johnson confirmed in an announcement to the country the news we had all been dreading. June 21st was no longer happening, until July 19th anyway.

Boris Johnson announced a four-week delay to the original planned 21st June reopening in England. A review will take place in two weeks, with there being a possibility of the reopening of the country taking place before July 19th.

With this news, a number of club nights and SU nights in Lincoln have cancelled or delayed their events as a result of the news.

Students’ Union events

In a social media post, the University of Lincoln’s Students’ Union said: “Following the Government’s announcement today regarding the extension of Covid restrictions, we have made the following decisions about events that were due to be held in the Engine Shed and The Platform.”

All ticket holders to the events “will be refunded automatically by the 2nd July.”

The events that have been cancelled are as follows: Welcome Back with Varski, Quack! Is Back, The Big Quiz and, Quack! Summer Party.

The other events set to take place have had slight alterations or have been rescheduled to a later date. The England vs Czech Republic on the big screen in the Engine Shed will now be ticketed, “with customers seated at tables, with social distancing in place.” Tickets will go on sale today at 12pm.

A decision is yet to be made on Daniel Sloss: Hubris taking place on June 24th. “Affected customers will be contacted directly via email regarding any changes to their tickets.” The Alumni Quack has been rescheduled to August 28th, “all customers will be emailed directly about how to request a refund if required.”

Despite having to cancel several events, Lincoln’s SU said: “We already have plans in place to ensure that students can make up for ‘lost’ time later this year…”
