Two Olly Murs shows cancelled after promoter goes bust

The promoter of two Olly Murs shows in Devon and Dorset has gone under meaning that at least some ticketholders will be relying on their banks and credit card providers for a refund. Others will seek their money back from ticket agents.

The shows at Exeter’s Powderham Castle and Kings Park in Bournemouth were being promoted by Stephen C Associates Limited, which has confirmed that it has ceased trading.

In a statement, the business said: “We deeply regret to inform you that the company Stephen C Associates Limited has ceased to trade. It is insolvent and is expected to go into liquidation shortly. As a result, the company is not in a position to offer you a refund”.

The statement goes on: “If you bought VIP packages with a credit card, you should contact your credit card company immediately and ask them to refund your money. If you have purchased your tickets through one of the nominated ticket agents you should contact them in the first instance”.

The firm’s collapse affects the two Murs shows – due to take place on 29 Jul and 5 Aug – and a BSO Last Night Of The Proms concert that was also due to occur at Powderham Castle. Local media report that the concert promoter had been having financial difficulties since at least January this year.

Commenting about the situation¬†on Twitter¬†earlier this week, Murs said: “I’m so gutted for my fans in Exeter and Bournemouth. Although it’s out of my control I’m still so sorry and hope I can get to see you all soon!”
