Pendragon are announcing new UK dates this Thursday - keep an eye on the web site and the "The Mob" group on Facebook for news.

I don't know what cut they get from that but their preferred outlet is The Merch Desk, you can get the new CD and some other great goodies there!

Yes, Rachel confirmed they'd received the funds a couple of days ago. Nick was extremely grateful.

I would suggest you join Pendragon fan chat "The Mob" on Facebook to keep up with news.

Given that all major events are being cancelled months in advance now, I would agree wholeheartedly with this assumption.

I've seen one message about "the tour being cut short" on their Twitter. But as the two gigs in June and July are far away in months and are festivals and kind of out or at the end of the "normal" tour schedule i just wanted to be sure that those two festivals are cancelled as well ..
I don't know to be honest, I suspect they are too far ahead to be certain, I will try to find out.

This may have a large financial impact on the band especially Nick and Rachel so we can all do our bit by buying Pendragon CDs etc from The Merch Desk.
 

Hi Alan. Didnít see this on the news, because we have avoided the news for the past 24 hours for Corona saturation.

There is nothing on the website, or Twitter, yet.

Do you know please (he asks very selfishly) what the position is with Chepstow Winters End?
Winters End has now been postponed by 1 year until 22-25 April 2021.

Yep, had the email this afternoon.

Well, at least it is something to look forward to in 2021, unless, of course, the lurgy carts me of before thenDead

Thanks for the link - I have made a donation, and hopefully this will help offset some of the losses.
You're a class act laz. And shamed me into doing the same. Embarrassed

I don't know, might be worth keeping an eye on their web site. It appears the Government may be about to announce a ban on "mass gatherings" so that may impact it.

Yes, I think you are right. Although, it will still expect me to sit or stand on jam packed trains and tubes in order to travel the length and breadth of the country to attend meetings.

Go figure😕
Surely that's down to your employer (or maybe they are your employer?). Have they not heard of video conferencing?

They are indeed my employer, hence the avatarWink
