Message from Paul Lewis as president of the Chipping Campden Music Festival:

‘We are living through one of the most extraordinary periods in the history of the UK and one that has had a devastating effect on the arts.

‘Whilst the full impact of Covid couldn’t have been predicted or averted, the self-inflicted disaster that is Brexit could have, and all the warnings that were dismissed as scare mongering, have turned out to be correct.

The arts in this country will survive with the continued generous support of those who understand their importance, but in the UK’s deliberate severing of the arts community’s easy links with the EU, we have lost something precious beyond words.’

Not sure what’s achieved by weeping into long-spilt milk.

It’s over.

Move on.
