I have a ticket for The Vampire Ball and had booked a room at the hotel. Last night I received an e-mail informing me my reservation had been cancelled as the hotel’s contract with the UK government as one of their quarantine hotels has been extended until the end of the year.
There were no updates on the Vampire Ball Website last night, but I spoke to the hotel this morning and they confirmed The Vampire Ball Convention will not be held there and is moving to a new venue. I asked the member of staff at the hotel if they knew where the event was going to be held and if it would be near Heathrow. He had no further information but at this time he did not think it would be near the Renaissance Hotel.
I’m sorry I don’t have anything more definitive in terms of information right now. The reason I wanted to post this was in case there are fans who have booked accommodation at a different hotel near to the convention and were unaware of the change.
In fairness to organisers Star Fury this could be a very recent development and they may be waiting until they have more information before they contact ticket holders. I checked the website today and the venue is now listed as “to be confirmed”. I have e-mailed them via their website.
As and when I have any further information, I will post it an update as soon as possible. I will also be checking their website regularly.
If any fellow Amber fans or visitors to the site find out any new information please e-mail me or get in tough via the dedicated Facebook and Twitter feeds. The links to all of these can be found at the top of the page.
