So if people want to be sure of a ticket for other events they'd better pick up a programme (available all over HB and on leaflet racks in West Yorkshire, libraries, arts centres, tourist offices etc) and fill in the advance booking coupon at the back.

Corrections to Hebden Bridge Times article about the Festival: 15 June 01

1. John Morrison will be performing at the Canalside Gallery, Machpelah, Burnley Road (just before the turn off to the railway station) at 8.00 Sunday 17 June and not at the Carlton as in the paper

2. John Lyons will be reading his poetry at the Java Lounge, Market Street at 7.30 and not at the Hourglass Studio as in the paper

3. Destination Brazil is performing on Thursday 21 June at the Canalside Gallery, Machpelah and not on Friday as in the paper

Moral of above is to believe the advertisement in the Hebden Bridge Times and the Festival programme rather than the article!!
