Saturday’s ceilidh cancelled – ticket refunds available

The ceilidh, due to take place on Saturday at St Columba’s Church, has been cancelled due to poor ticket sales. Ticket refunds are available at Nest cafe, or wherever you purchased your ticket.

The rest of the 2018 Crosspool Festival events continue as planned.

A quick reminder that the Open Mic night at Nest cafe on Friday 6 July starts at 7.30pm, not 8pm as stated in the printed programme.
