Sixteen years and out!

Hello Friends

This is a difficult message/post to write on behalf of my husband Jim (Friends of Folk). Due to his sudden diagnosis of a brain tumour planning for gigs has gone a bit haywire.

The final Friends of Folk gig at Fox Lane was Chris and Siobhan Nelson and friends on 2 September. Refunds for cancelled Folk at Fox Lane gigs will be made as soon as practicable.

All the gigs planned at The Atkinson at Southport are still going ahead with tickets available from the box office at www.theatkinson.co.uk or call 01704 533333.

The last 16 years have been great fun, if a bit fraught at times, and we hope they have brought as much enjoyment to you as they have to Jim and me.

Best wishes to all

Jean and Jim Minall
