Further to both the World Heath Organisation and Public Health England's advice the Rotary Jazz Festival planned for May 15 - 17th 2020 has been postponed. An alternative date in November has been reserved by both the Abbey and the performers but the details will not be confirmed until August when further advice should be available regarding public gatherings.
Hexham Rotary are of course very disappointed as the event was principally a fundraising initiative for both their Emergency and Disaster Fund and the new Cancer Research fund, but there was no alternative but to postpone the event under the circumstances.
Andrew Rigg (President - Hexham Rotary)
