Coca-Cola has announced that its planned Coca-Cola Real Magic experience in Belfast on Friday 8th, Saturday 9th and Sunday 10th of December is being cancelled due to weather conditions and the prioritisation of public safety.
Coca-Cola said public safety is a primary concern at all events it undertakes to deliver, and as a result of current weather conditions in Belfast and the specific impact of these conditions on The Titanic Quarter, the decision has been taken by the company to cancel the event for all planned dates this week including Friday 8th, Saturday 9th and Sunday 10th of December
All ticket holders to the Coca-Cola Real Magic Christmas experience are advised to hold onto their tickets until they receive further communication from Coca-Cola via the email address provided at time of purchase.
Efforts are underway by the company to find an alternative date so that Coca-Cola can still deliver its Real Magic experience in Belfast for those impacted by the cancellation of events this weekend.
Should this be possible ticket holders will be contacted via the contact email they provided at time of purchase. If suitable dates cannot be found, the event will be fully cancelled, and ticket holders will be entitled to a full refund.
It was intended that the money collected through the ticket sales was to be donated directly to YouthAction NI. Despite the potential refunding of ticket sales Coca-Cola confirmed today that they will honour the commitment to make the donation to YouthAction NI this Christmas.
Speaking on behalf of Coca-Cola, Aisling Wilde, Senior Manager Brand Experiences for GB&I said:
“We’re truly sorry that events outside of our control have led to the cancellation of this special Christmas experience in Belfast this weekend. We were looking forward to bringing people together to celebrate in the magic of Christmas.
"Efforts are underway to find alternative arrangements so that we can still deliver our Real Magic experience for those impacted by the cancellation this weekend.”
