*Cancelled* Books By The Beach Presents Jenny Eclair

Books By The Beach Presents Jenny Eclair

The Spa Theatre | Scarborough Spa

Unfortunately due to the COVID-19 Outbreak this year's Books The Beach Literature Festival has been cancelled.

Statement from organiser Heather French:

"After recommendations from the government last night to avoid social gatherings, I have made the most difficult decision to cancel next month’s Books by the Beach. After months of organisation and high audience numbers expected it’s a huge disappointment, but I have to put the health of visiting authors, hosts & audiences first. Most important thing is for us all to stay safe and well. Ticket refunds will be available at Stephen Joseph and Spa Complex Box Offices.

Unfortunately there will be personal financial fallout, for Books by the Beach has no public funding and is totally dependent on ticket sales. As solo organiser it all lands on my shoulders and as a result I’ve decided I won’t be organising any future festivals.

Time for me to explore different pathways ...

I’d like to take this opportunity to thank the people who have supported and stuck with me through the highs and er ... challenges."

The Spa Box Office will be contacting all ticket holders in the coming days to process refunds.
