Dear Good Housekeeping Live guests,
Due to planned nationwide transport strikes next week over the event days of Good Housekeeping Live, we have made the difficult decision to postpone next week’s event until October.
The strikes are likely to take place on the 21st, 23rd and 25th June and will severely affect routes across the country, we believe not only for guests travelling to Carlton House Terrace from within London but also for those coming from further away. We are also mindful that organising alternative routes to the event, via taxi for example, will be more expensive than usual.
We have monitored the situation closely and believe postponing the event is the best decision for everyone involved. Our priority is to ensure Good Housekeeping Live is an informative, enjoyable and most importantly, accessible, event for all attendees.
We will be offering all ticket holders a full refund within 10 working days, which will be automatically paid to you via EventBrite. We would love you to join us at the rescheduled event which will take place on Friday 14th and Saturday 15th October at Carlton House Terrace in London, and will be offering you exclusive, early bird access to tickets when on sale. You can expect more information on the repurchasing process in the coming weeks.
We share our sincerest apologies for having to reschedule so close to the event, and hope the situation hasn’t caused too much of an inconvenience. We’re now looking ahead to October, and truly hope you’ll still be able to join us to celebrate Good Housekeeping’s 100thanniversary in style.
We’d love you to join us at this exclusive event packed with talks, demonstrations and experiences, delicious food and drink, and the chance to meet our experts, famous faces and authors you love…
