Shirley Collins update

Unfortunately, Shirley Collins has had to make the decision to withdraw from the KITE festival line-up. Here’s a statement from her management:

“Sadly Shirley won’t be able to make it to Kite Festival. It’s tough being 87 and her ability to travel long distances is limited at the moment because of her mobility. She wants to pass on to you how sorry she is as she dearly wanted to support both the festival and her book America Over the Water. She has been advised to take rest to help her recuperate and hopes to be active again soon.”
