"We share your regret and disappointment at the recent cancelations in your most excellent town but they were due to circumstances beyond the control of all concerned.
When the original show was postponed due to illness on 20th of July, it was rescheduled with surprising alacrity.
Unfortunately, it seems that this August 1st date did not catch the eye and fancy of the majority of original ticket holders, having made plans to be elsewhere.
Matters of personal well-being, whim or the weather played absolutely no part in the decision to cancel this second show.
It is hoped that we will be able to return to Richmond at a more opportune moment.”
