Although the decision is pretty academic for the Kildwick MiniRingers, there will be no Skipton Music Festival this year – and so no chance to defend the two trophies that they won last year.
Even if the Festival had gone ahead, it would almost certainly have been for solo performances only. And, anyway, we can’t meet to rehearse!
Last year’s Festival got through by the skin of its teeth, Lockdown 1 being announced as it drew to a close. Let us hope and pray that the centenary celebrations of 2022 will be able to go ahead.
