To our supporters …

As I write we are seeing the 2020 Festival Season collapse due to the Coronavirus pandemic.

Many of these events will not reappear until 2021, some will be rescheduled and a few others will probably vanish.

We hope all our supporters stay safe and, although we shall not be meeting face to face in the near future, we wish you and yours all the best, hope to see you on the other side.
