We have tried to answer as many of your common questions below.
Hope it's helpful & do let us know if there is anything else to add.
WHAT DO I NEED TO ATTEND SECRET BRUNCH?
Our events are open to everybody.
If our vibe resonates with you, then grab a ticket and join the tribe.
All we ask of you is to be kind, and be you.
DID YOU USED TO BE A MEMBERS ONLY EVENT?
Yes when we first started. It was the cool thing at the time and we followed the herd. But then realised that members-only models are flawed, at a time where we are trying to break down barriers and bring everybody together. So we scrapped the whole thing, back in 2016, and opened our doors to everybody. We do not screen our attendees, we do not have door pickers, nor do we operate a guest list, or work with any promoters or influencers.
HOW OFTEN DO YOU HOST YOUR GATHERINGS?
When we feel inspired.
WHAT IS THE FORMAT?
The afternoon will start with relaxed electronic sounds, giving you
a chance to immerse and get to know one another. As we progress,
the tempo picks up, and we let go to the music.
Unlike traditional gigs, our headline set is at the
half way point of the event.
WHAT IS THE MUSIC?
Nomadic electronic sounds from different corners of the mother earth.
IS THERE A LINE UP?
The musical journey of each event is brought to life by our tribe,
consisting of different DJ's and musicians.
WHEN DO YOU ANNOUNCE THE LOCATION?
On the day, you will receive the location via email.
IS THERE A DRESS-CODE?
Yes, every gathering has it's own dress-code. But this is not a costume party.
The dress-code is tailored to the location and where we are with our story.
AND IS IT MANDATORY?
WILL YOU PROVIDE DIRECTION?
Yes at some point before the event you will receive an email,
together with a Pinterest board. But the general direction is to express you.
Think of yourself as a walking piece of art, dressed to survive,
and represent what you would wear in that moment.
Strictly no suits, and no lack of effort.
WHAT IS THE MINIMUM AGE REQUIREMENT TO ATTEND?
HOW CAN I BE SURE THAT I AM ATTENDING THE REAL SECRET BRUNCH?
If it is not posted on this website, or on our instagram,
then it's not Secret Brunch.
DO YOU TAKE PHOTOS?
Yes we do, but we cannot guarantee if a photo of you will be published. We usually publish photos that are photographically of high quality, and inline with the artistic direction of the event. We look for art pieces rather than Photo Booth pictures. Sometimes we don't publish any at all.
WHAT IS YOUR REFUND POLICY?
We do not offer refunds. However, you are welcome to transfer your ticket to a friend,
as long as you let us know at least 48 hours before the event.
The reason why we do not offer refunds is because of the upfront costs involved in putting on these
productions, which often cannot be recovered.
HAVE YOUR TICKET PRICES GONE UP?
Sadly yes. Since Brexit, the pandemic and now inflation, our industry has been hit with huge
shortages and supply chain problems. Therefore cost of putting on these events have
in some cases doubled or even tripled. It is no secret, that the more support we receive
from you, through tickets, table purchases, sponsorships or collaborations,
the better shows we can put on, in this very challenging environment.
ARE YOU RESPONSIBLE FOR ALL ASPECTS OF THE EVENT?
No. We are only responsible for the creative direction and organisation.
We then rely on numerous suppliers, as well as the venue itself, to deliver the production.
DO YOU OWN THE VENUES YOU USE?
No. Just like you we are a guest at the venue.
Through extensive due diligence, we try to only work with reputable venues.
DID YOU RECEIVE ANY GOVERNMENT SUPPORT DURING THE PANDEMIC?
We were forced into total shut down for over 18 months and received no support.
DO YOU PAY EVERYBODY WHO WORKS ON YOUR EVENTS?
The short answer is yes, unless we agree to a sponsorship or collaboration model,
where we provide our platform and marketing in exchange for financial support, product or a service. These sponsorships and collaborations help us deliver events at a time where we face huge financial risks and challenges. A few years ago we used to also rely on a small number of volunteers per event, which is a common practice in the events industry. But we decided that wasn't for us. So now everybody working on our events is paid, above the national living wage.
DO YOU GIVE BACK?
Yes, we have supported numerous initiatives that are inline with our message, and will continue to do so. Giving back is a founding principle of what we do, and we welcome guests with the same mindset.
DO YOU SOMETIMES GET IT WRONG?
Yes of course we do. We are humans too. And when we do get it wrong, we immediately apologise for it. We then investigate it, fix it, and make a commitment not to get it wrong again.
You can always contact us about anything.
WHAT DO YOU BELIEVE IN?
- Live - in this moment
- Be you - and celebrate you
- Feel - love & be kind
- Forgive - nobody is perfect
- Dance - and let go
- Unity - no matter the gender,
background, colour or social status
HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN AROUND FOR?
For over a decade.
