Statement re: Michael Sheen

Thursday 24th May 2018

We are, frankly, gutted to announce that Michael Sheen will no longer be opening the festival at 6pm tomorrow Friday May 25th. Michael sent us a message earlier:

I am so sorry I cannot be with you at your event. For the first time in years I have to apologise for not being able to join you and other events I was attending this week, due to last minute unforeseeable changes to my schedule. I wish you well with the event and supporting you with future events. 

We are doing everything we can to find a substitute, but we’d like to offer our apologies to anyone disappointed by this: we realise some people may have been coming to hear Michael speak. We are confident that Michael will be back to support the festival next year.
