GUEST,kenny Closure of Folk Festivals (118* d) RE: Closure of Folk Festivals 28 Apr 18

Thank you for that excellent post above, Howard. However, would it not therefore have been more honest of the organisers, certainly in this particular case - and any other festivals which may be "operating on a financial knife-edge" - to state from the outset that there may be an element of financial risk in purchasing tickets in advance ?
Apart from sympathising with those who bought tickets in good faith and have lost their money, my concern is that this one instance could have a "ripple" effect, and spread to other festivals, where customers may be reluctant to part with their hard-earned up-front, thus perhaps putting other events in jeopardy.
