BCDO 2021 cancelled; 2022 dates set

Big Church Day Out

THE ORGANISERS of Britain's largest Christian music event, Big Church Day Out, have announced that this year's BCDO will not now take place. Said founder Tim Jupp, "To protect the vision and the long term future of BCDO, we have made the difficult decision not to hold the event in May this year. We are so sad as I'm sure you will be too, but whilst there still remains so much uncertainty around the virus, vaccines and when social distancing measures will come to an end, regrettably this is currently our best option.

"Through last year I'm sure almost all of us missed gathering in ways that we were once used to. We believe more passionately than ever before in the part the Big Church Day Out can play in the lives of us individually and as churches and communities in uniting God's people together, not only to celebrate the life we have found in Jesus but to create a space where each and every one of us can bring our friends and family who may not yet even know him.

"We're excited to announce that BCDO 2022 will now take place on Friday and Saturday, the 3rd and 4th of June 2022, and tickets will go on sale on Saturday May 29th this year. Our plans for next year are already well underway, and we would love you to start planning too by thinking and praying about who you might love to bring with you, who are yet to start their journey of faith."

Tickets purchased for the 2020 or 2021 events will automatically be valid for BCDO 2022. CR
