Organisers: ‘gutted that it’s been hit on the head over a piece of paper’

galaTomorrow’s West Pilton & Muirhouse Community Gala has been CANCELLED. Organisers say they have had to cancel as they have not received the necessary Entertainment Licence in time, but now plan to stage the event next month.

The group’s Facebook page was updated yesterday to say:

Ok folks , sadly we have to break some bad news , after multiple lots of paperwork , and permissions it seems the galas Entertainment Licence has not been granted yet. With insurance , park permission and suppliers all in place it’s a shame it’s all come down to one bit of council legislation ….

Therefor the gala will be cancelled and rescheduled to a date tbc near the end of September… Please share with as many as possible so as everyone knows it won’t go ahead this Sunday..

The committee and truly gutted that it’s been hit on the head over a piece of paper. But we will strive to get this pushed through for Sept…’

West Pilton & Muirhouse Gala was also cancelled last year because of ‘supplier issues’.

Events today at Drylaw, Silverlea and Craighall Centre all go ahead as planned (see previous posts).
