* ANNOUNCEMENT *
After much thought and deliberation the Shetland Accordion and Fiddle Club Committee has reluctantly decided that, due to many uncertainties regarding indoor gatherings, social distancing, travel, etc. the 2021 Shetland Accordion and Fiddle Festival will be postponed until 2022.
Without some guarantee on venue capacities it is impossible to budget with any certainty. With capacity in halls likely to be considerably reduced income is consequently reduced and as a result the financial viability of the event is called into question.
The committee has been amazed by the generosity of our supporters who have donated over £5000 both through our Justgiving page and also directly to the committee to support future festivals. We feel that it would be much better to save this money to put towards a “full blown” festival in 2022.
The committee hopes to mark the 2021 festival weekend (7th-11th October) in some way. The format of which will be dictated by government guidelines at the time. Details will be announced when this becomes clearer.
The likely date for 2022 is Thursday 13th October but this will only be confirmed once holiday dates for the 2022-2023 school year are confirmed. This should be available in the next couple of months.
