CANCELLATION 15th WIRRAL FOLK FESTIVAL 2022
It is with
great disappointment that I have to inform you that, due to health problems,
the 15th WIRRAL FOLK FESTIVAL planned for the 3rd to 5th of June 2022
will not now go ahead.
My wife and Co-Director/Secretary Angela Owen stood down her role at the end of September and is recovering slowly from a serious back injury.
My mobility is quite poor at the moment caused by an injury to my hip.
together with the uncertain nature of the UK and Europe, re Covid 19, it was
felt that the correct committee decision was to cancel our plans.
I would appreciate if you could spread the word to your contacts, be they folk club/festival audience or performers.
If you feel you have the inclination to work with our festival committee in future, please do not hesitate to give me a ring or drop me a line.
