UPDATE TO ALL OUR DEAR CHEESE LOVERS,
It is with much disappointment and regret to inform you that we must postpone MOULD – A Cheese Festival in Melbourne (June 25-27).
This Festival is all about connecting you, the cheese lover, to the amazing Australian cheese makers we help represent. Without you both, there is no festival.
Even with likelihood of restrictions easing in time for June 25 – 27, there is still doubt and uncertainty surrounding interstate travel and the ability of the cheesemakers to not only join the event but return to their farms without the need to quarantine. Animals do not milk themselves, after all.
In addition, we need to make this decision now so as not to pressure or burden the makers creating cheese especially for the event and therefore the risk of excess stock. Been there, done that.
For us, it is difficult to express how this feels as the disappointment is real and deep, as since October 2019, we (REVEL) have run only two festivals (Brisbane and Sydney MOULD) and are yet to run one in our beloved hometown.
It is all the more bitter when we consider the festival sold out well over a month ago, and how patience and supportive all of you have been. Plus, you know, lockdown.
HOWEVER, we will NOT be cancelling this event and have been working with the venue, and others, to find an alternative and we’re pleased to say we have a solution and, in many ways, have come full circle.
This event is going to happen, damn it!
We acknowledge the postpone of this event, and the change of venues, is not ideal and frustrating. We feel you. But in the end, we’d rather run a safe, wonderful event experience than not.
Your continued support and patience is so very, very appreciated. Like, so much.
Dan, Rachel & Dave
