Official announcement about 2020's event

Thank you for your patience – we appreciate that this situation has been seemingly ever-changing. We have been waiting for government and local council guidance to be announced before getting in touch with you with a formal, and accurate, communication.

We are sad and disappointed to announce that both June 28th at Castle Street, and now July at Sandbanks Beach, will not be taking place in 2020.

We have spent a lot of time working closely with Sandpolo and BCP Council, looking at different ways to still deliver the event, but several factors, including event policy beyond our control, makes it impossible. As always, the safety of our guests, suppliers and staff is paramount.

We are delighted to announce that we have been successful in confirming Martin Kemp as our star guest for the GOLD Eighties Ocean Party on Saturday 10th July, 2021. We are confident that guests will enjoy an evening of fabulous entertainment on one of the world’s most famous beaches!

Guests are also invited to enjoy an afternoon of exhilarating Sandpolo from 1pm, with food stalls, multiple bars, and an eighties-inspired fashion show adding to the excitement, at what will be a memorable experience.

Existing ticket holders

This is a very trying time for the event industry. We are a small team, and have now had to cancel all our events throughout 2020. Unfortunately, we have fallen through the government grants scheme – so your support is much appreciated.

As such;

  • We urge you to carry your ticket over to GOLD Eighties Ocean Party 2021. If so, no further action is required, and please accept a heartfelt thank-you from our team!
  • However, if requesting a refund is your only option, please click here to apply

Refunded tickets will be offered to those on the waiting list for first refusal.

P.S. We would like to thank guests who have reached out with messages of support since moving the event to Sandbanks Beach as part of the established Sandpolo weekend. Your kind words have been a huge boost for us, and it’s reassuring to hear that so many of you are already looking forward to next year’s event. We would also like to thank the team at 10 Castle Street for their support and understanding throughout what has been a testing time for everyone involved. As we have said, we promise to make 2021’s event a memorable occasion for all, and it’s nice to have something in the diary to look forward to!

For now, stay safe, and alert, and we hope to see you on the beach in 2021!

GOLD Eighties Ocean Party team.
