Does anyone on here know what's happening with Camperjam 2021 and with Jazz Events, the organisers? Have they gone out of business or something, due to the awful event season this year?

We tried to book for Camperjam 2021 (the website is up, tickets handled there via ticketshed), but we can't finish our order. The system says it can't calculate delivery costs to NL (??? is this a Brexit thing? Was never an issue the last times we went!), can we please call them.
We called the number listed, it turned out it is not from Jazz Events but from some Jazz Publishing or so, handling advertisements and subscriptions to magazines, they know nothing of Camperjam or Jazz Events. They gave us another number. There we just get voice mail. No response whatsoever.
We sent e-mails twice, enquiring about our ordering issues: no response whatsoever.
We used the chat function on their site: no response whatsoever.
We used the chat on their Facebook page: no response whatsoever.

Have they gone bust? Is Camperjam not happening next year?

I think it’s a more wide spread issue. My Dutch pal is coming over for Christmas (after 3 years in Kuwait) and wants to try out camping with the new van and Eriba. He’s been reaearching sites and finding most are not accepting any bookings that far in advance (and he is only checking ones that are normally open all year round). It seems many are being conservative and waiting until next year...

Thanks @AlisonF, but our point is not they don’t accept our booking yet, they do offer booking. The point is the booking process is broken, their site offers the wrong tel nr and they keep stumm on enquiries. Totally stumm. That, all together, is worrying...

Finally received a response today. Excuses for the delay, and the site has been updated so we could order now.

So, we’re on for next year’s Camperjam! Let’s hope we can go, Corona and Brexit willing! :Nailbiting

Exactly why should Brexit stop you coming? Unless of course your government stops all travel to the UK in which case you'll lose you tickets, so better make sure you have Travel Insurance.:thumb

More likely to be stopped by Covid 19.

No idea. All we know there is still no deal yet. So, noone knows how travel between UK and EU will work in 2021.

In my days I travelled a lot behind the Iron Curtain for work, before the Berlin Wall came down, and the Israel and Arab Middle-East. There are more Kafka-like travel arrangements possible than any sane person can imagine, I can tell you from experience, just because one regime or bureaucracy wants to spite the other...

But, we are optimistic! We bought our tickets and we booked the ferry!:thumb
