Sad news today that Colin Jacobson will not be able to attend this years Festival. He has been a rock on the stage at the previous events and we will miss his knowledge and expertise this year. We send him our best regards and hope he will be able to join us at the next Festival. In the meantime Eamonn McCabe multi award winning sports and editorial/portrait photographer and former Picture Editor of the Guardian will fill Colin’s shoes in September
