The bad news is that Ghosts of Wales Live! has been postponed due to the lockdown. The good news is that we’ll do something even better when it’s safe to do so.
We live in uncertain times which, sadly, means all of my talks and events have been postponed for the foreseeable future due to the country-wide lockdown.
It will now (hopefully) take place in the autumn, and the one silver lining to the delay is that I can’t think of a better time to launch a book about Welsh ghosts than Halloween.
I’ll do my best to make Nos Calan Gaeaf extra spooky this year – promise.
Thank you NHS and all of the heroes
Of course, me cancelling a few events really means nothing in the grand scheme of things.
My eternal thanks go to all of the heroes risking everything on the front line to keep us safe right now, and I can’t imagine what hardships they are facing.
Also, as someone who spends a large amount of my personal and professional time in theatres, art galleries and bookshops, my heart goes out to all of my friends facing an uncertain future in these and other industries.
It can be easy to overlook the arts at times like these, but let us not forget the immense contribution they make to our daily lives.
I look forward to seeing you all sooner rather than later.
