John and Jackie Romero have asked us to pass on the news that they have been informed by the "Kent International" that the Hotel has been sold and all future bookings at the venue, including theirs, have been cancelled and will not be honoured with immediate effect. The good news is that they have found a new replacement venue, which they believe is both better suited to their needs and offers a much higher quality of service. The new home for their 24th – 27th September Organ and Keyboard Festival will be a superior 3 star hotel in Folkestone called "The Burlington".

A short note from Byron Jones:
Byron & Terry would like to thank all the artists and dealers for making their 28th Sand Bay Festival a resounding success again this year.
Not forgetting the wonderful audience, you yourselves.
Now I would like to ask a favour.
We had the priviledge of handing a cheque for £1,500.00 to The Dogs for Disabled, and some of you took pictures, and as our pictures didn't turn out too good, if anyone has some pictures they can email us, we would be very gratetful. We need a good picture for The Dogs for Disabled magazine.
