Respect re-groups

One love sisters & brothers.

This year’s ‘respect festival’ has been suspended for a year until 1st September 2013. As you can imagine this has not been an easy decision to take, but with times as they are we had to make a decision in the best interests for the future of ‘Respect’

We would like to say a heartfelt thank you for all of your support so far.

And ask you once again for your support to ensure our event has a bright future. If you have been to the ‘Respect festival over the last three years, we would appreciate it if you could write a short paragraph of your experiences and what the event means to you (100 words).

We will then compile your responses, and they will be part of a funding bid that will ensure the future of the respect festival.

We would like to thank you in advance for your support. WATCH THIS SPACE FOR DEVELOPMENTS
