“Due to a number of issues, we have over the past months been considering what to do with our festivals and have in fact been considering shutting them down. We have however recently been offered help and it is with great pleasure we can announce Gennaro Fiondella and Colette McKeown are about to join our team. This will enable our Accordion Weekend Holidays to continue on into the foreseeable future”.
