A PERFORMANCE by renowned poet Luke Wright this evening in Whitchurch has been cancelled.

Wright was due to perform his show, The Ballad Seller, at Dodington Lodge this evening at 8pm.

The event has been cancelled after Wright received a Covid-19 notification from the NHS Track and Trace app.

A spokesman for the show said they hoped to reschedule later in the year.

They said: "Sadly, due to the days we presently live in, tonight's Inn Crowd show at the Dodington Lodge Hotel with balladeer Luke Wright has been cancelled due to Luke being pinged by the NHS Track and Trace.

"We wish him well.

"We hope to reschedule his appearance for later in the year so keep your eyes and ears open."
