When Alan told me he was moving Bridgnorth Festival to the site in Shrewsbury, it was his enthusiasm for a new venture that made me and many others think “this is bound for glory and success”.
Always a great supporter of AFO and kind enough to say AFO helped him get on with the challenges of an event on the move and growing, it is with great sadness that this day is marked with his passing.
I’m sure that the team at Shrewsbury Folk Festival will have sad moments in the final stages of festival planning and over the weekend.
A particularly difficult time for Sandra, but I believe they will pull together and deliver a first-class festival in proud memory of its founder and driving force.
