Twestival London 2013 Postponed

It is with regret that the team behind Twestival London 2013 has today taken the difficult decision to announce that this year's event on September 2 is to be postponed.

While we had worked our socks off to create a really exciting evening full of fun to raise money for BeatBullying, ticket sales have been surprisingly slow. There has also been an unfortunate lack of support from the wider tech community in terms of sponsorship funds and to help us publicise and promote the event to a wider audience.

We will now be regrouping to find another suitable date in the calendar before 2013 is at an end  and we hope you will then come and join us to #PlayFair in aid of the great work BeatBullying does for young people.

If you have a Twestival London 2013 enquiry or would like to offer some assistance either financially or volunteer-based to our rescheduled event, please email: Twestival.London@gmail.com

Those who have already bought tickets for September 2 will be contacted and offered a refund or the chance to move their ticket to the new date.

Twestival London 2013 is now less than two weeks away. If you've not bought a ticket yet, what's stopping you? We've loads of fun things happening down there on the night of Monday 2nd September. Here are 10 reasons why you really NEED to be there… and here's that all-important ticket link https://ldntwestival.eventbrite.com

1) We're raising money for @BEATBULLYING. The charity does a superb job helping those who suffer from cyberbullying and your £10 entrance fee (we open from 6.30pm to midnight) will go towards keeping up that good work. It's all for chariteeee remember with Twestival now in 72 cities across 25 countries. Come and be part of a global movement. https://ldntwestival.eventbrite.com

2) Come and #PlayFair with us as we turn The Cape pub in Moorgate into a GIANT FAIRGROUND. There'll be music, food, games and a host of surprises. Where else can you get all the fun of the fair on a Monday night? Roll up, Roll up! https://ldntwestival.eventbrite.com

3) Our RETRO GAMES arena upstairs at The Cape will feature Street Fighter II, MARIO KART, Duck Hunt and GoldenEye - all supplied courtesy of @ReplayEvents. Come and relive your childhood or teenage years and see if you can emerge top of our Twestival London leaderboard - designed by the clever people @ThinkWall. https://ldntwestival.eventbrite.com

4) You'll need to get a token to play our games. They are given out for a £1 donation and that goes straight into the fund for BeatBullying. So every time you #PLAYFAIR, you'll be doing your bit for our great partner charity. https://ldntwestival.eventbrite.com

5) Downstairs at The Cape we have even more fun in store with a host of fairground SIDESHOWS. There's a massive OPERATION BODY PARTS game and a Crystal Maze-style CASH CUBE as well as a chance to TEST YOUR STRENGTH. Again, each game needs a £1 donation into the charity pot. https://ldntwestival.eventbrite.com

 6) EARLYBIRDS can purchase one of a limited number of early entrance tickets in advance for £20. This gives you half an hour of play before the crowds from 6pm and also FIVE tokens to get you started. https://ldntwestival.eventbrite.com

7) A fairground wouldn't be the same without a star attraction and we're proud to announce that Twitter's favourite singers @VERITYANDVIOLET will be on stage at different points throughout the night to entertain us and maybe lead us all in a singsong. They're giving their time for free for this worthy cause, so come along, support them, support us and buy your £10 ticket now. https://ldntwestival.eventbrite.com

8) You can't have fair fun without FACEPAINT and we're lucky enough to have @Livi_Lollipop_X along on the night to give you a colourful makeover (in return for a donation to BeatBullying) like you've never seen before. She's very talented and is lending us her skills for free to support our charitable efforts. https://ldntwestival.eventbrite.com

9) As Twestival is being held in a pub, it's over 18s only. But that means there's a BAR selling alcoholic beverages. So come along after work, bring some colleagues, meet some new friends or hook up with existing contacts. Twestival is a great reason for socialising and informal NETWORKING. Who knows who you might meet! https://ldntwestival.eventbrite.com

10) We'll reveal this last one and plenty more nearer the time and also on the night. Well, we've got to keep a few things secret to leave some surprises! https://ldntwestival.eventbrite.com

£10 GENERAL ADMISSION TICKETS ON SALE NOW!

Roll up, Roll up, and experience all the fun of the fair at this year's London Twestival 2013 on September 2.

General £10 entry tickets for over 18s only are now on sale giving you 5.5 hours to #playfair in aid of charity partner BeatBullying.

We're looking to raise as much money as possible to support its vital work helping the victims of cyberbullying. Your cash may also go towards the training of teenage mentors who aid those suffering such online abuse.

We'll be taking over The Cape near Moorgate, in the heart of the city, for one night only bringing our sideshows and retro games into the inside fairground for a night of fun and challenges.

There will be a leaderboard courtesy of the lovely guys at Thinkwall [http://www.thinkwall.com/ @thinkwall] so we can see who comes out as the cream of the crop.

Games cost a donation of £1 per play in aid of BeatBullying and we'll have the likes of Mario Kart, Streetfighter II, Duck Hunt and Golden eye on hand to rack up points on.

Downstairs there will also be the chance to Test You Strength ol' skool style while also Formula 1 Pit Stop Challenge and even Batak Pro!!

We've also got plenty more surprises lined up including live music, special guests and a raffle with prizes you'll want to be in with a chance of winning.

And don't forget why we're doing it. Research carried out by BeatBullying has found that 1 in 3 young people in the UK have been a victim of cyberbullying. So come on, buy a £10 entry ticket today and tell your friends to do the same - and spread our #PlayFair hashtag far and wide throughout the Twittersphere.

Emma-Jane Cross, CEO and founder of BeatBullying says: "We believe that bullying contradicts the basic values of fair play and respect, so we’re thrilled to have been chosen as Twestival London’s charity partner. 

"Bullying both on and offline continues to be a dangerous problem for a huge number of young people. The money raised at the event will help us to continue to support the hundreds of thousands of children and young people going through the pain and humiliation of being bullied today."

If you want the chance to rack up the points on our games before the rush, then buy one of our £20 Early Entry tickets. Just 50 are being sold and each one includes five tokens to play and a half hour of exclusive playtime before everyone else turns up.

But just remember to #PlayFair.

TIMINGS:

6.00pm: Doors for Early Bird ticket holders

6.30pm: Doors for General Admission ticket holders

Midnight: Curfew

We are still looking for a few volunteers to help out on the night as well as SPONSORS and raffle prizes. Oh, and did we mention SPONSORS!! Every little helps and will swell the pot for BeatBullying come the end of what will be a fantastic evening.
