Welcome to the members page

The 2020 Festival  as planned is now cancelled due to uncertainties over the Coronavirus epidemic 

 

There is not enough time before October for the Virus to be eliminated and allow people the confidence to attend theatre and concert performances in any number.

Currently, theatres are not permitted to put on live performances; social distancing is still at 2 metres (only 1m plus lots of provisos).  Cameron Mackintosh and Stephen Fry are among those who think theatres won’t be open until next year at the earliest.  It sounds as if  it’s even good bye to the Pantomime Season!

The Committee is very disappointed in this.  After meeting monthly, and planning a full programme for October.

Those who were to perform have been very supportive and have promised to return.

I have been networking with other Festivals across the UK and Europe. All are similarly thwarted but not downhearted.

 

We are creative people who like a challenge.  

Wetherby Festival has been mounting popular quizzes every fortnight (thank you Len).  We have begun a u-tube channel with performances and there are more plans in the pipeline.

In addition to our normal October Festival, we are currently talking with others about how to stage extra things when safe to do so. 

 

Thank all of you who are continuing to support us by keeping up your subscriptions.
