Country's biggest swingers festival suspended because of coronavirus

The biggest festival for swingers in the UK – and Europe – which was due to be held this weekend has been cancelled because of coronavirfus.

Swingfields is held each year at a secret location in the south of England, and was due to start on Thursday.

But the dates for the three-day event have been scrapped and Swingfields Aurora Festival will not go ahead until 2021.

In a statement the organisers said: “It is with great regret that we have made the decision to cancel Aurora Festival 2020.

“This is a decision that has been discussed and agreed by the Aurora committee, after a lot of thought and deliberation, looking at the practicalities and considering the safeguarding of all of our wonderful customers.

“The impact of Covid-19 has already affected ticket sales. There is also the potential for vendors and suppliers to withdraw at any time, due to illness or self isolation, leaving us with a space to fill at short notice or more likely, not at all.

“We pride ourselves on providing the best, independent, Lifestyle Festival in the UK, giving our customers an experience to remember. We are not prepared to offer you all, an experience that is a poor replica that does not reflect the true essence and standards of Aurora.

“We will use this time to look after ourselves and each other and see where this virus takes us. Hopefully 2021 will be the year to return bigger and fresher and virus free.

“We apologise to all of our customers, for any inconvenience this will cause but we do have your health and safety at heart.

“Ticket holders may request a refund or a transfer of their ticket to next years festival. Please remember that any early bird or discounted tickets that are refunded, will not be available at that same price, next year.”

Swingfields has been held since 2013 as an adult only event for those in the ‘lifestyle’ and all ‘adult’ communities.

As well as music and barbecues the event officers fetish nights, fancy dress, entertainment, hot tubs and stalls. People from across Europe camp at the event each year.
