Judy Street refused UK entry, but hoping to return later this year

Judy cover yellow FINAL (1)I don’t tend to do breaking news on the writewyattuk blog, but on the morning of Friday, May 16, it was announced that Judy Street – the subject of a feature and interview on this site last Saturday (May 10) – was refused entry to the UK on arrival at Manchester Airport ‘due to an inadequate work permit’ – scuppering a planned five-date visit.

Her promoters posted an update on their Facebook page on the morning of her appearance at Preston’s 53 Degrees, apologising ‘to everyone for this situation, which is out of Judy’s and our control. Judy is devastated.’

They did however add that the regular Preston’s Got Soul event will go ahead – with DJ sets from Russ Winstanley, Glenn Walker-Foster, Gary Hollins, Derek Smith and Glen Miller – although full refunds are available via the promoters or 53 Degrees.

For those still wishing to attend, there’s a £5 reduction on the ticket price if purchased in advance. For full details try here.

The promoter added: “Many apologies from Judy and Preston’s Got Soul. We are hoping to rearrange this event in October and will advise as soon as possible.”

Check via the other venues affected by the cancellation – the Swinley in Wigan (Saturday, May 17), the Minto Hotel in Edinburgh (Friday, May 23), the new Twisted Wheel in Manchester (Sunday, May 25), and Rumworth Hall, Bolton (Friday, May 30) – regarding rearrangements there.
