We've heard from a number of concerned schools and families and we want to ensure everyone involved in Northern Stars that the care and comfort of our audiences, participants, partners and staff team is something we value highly at Eden Court. Bearing this in mind helped us arrive comfortably at our decision to postpone the event originally planned for 24-26 March.
We understand that a huge amount of work goes into preparing for Northern Stars. We would like to assure you that we will do everything possible to run the event at a later date when we can truly celebrate together.
We have dates penciled in the Empire Theatre in June (Tuesday 9th – Thursday 11th). Our plan would be to mirror the exact schedule, day by day. I’d like to personally thank everyone for their good wishes and positive responses to our decision to run Northern Stars this year. We really appreciate the support and we wholeheartedly look forward to running the event at a time when we can truly celebrate the achievements of everyone involved.
