At the start of the pandemic in March we took the decision to make online access to our news free of charge by taking down our paywall. At a time where accurate information about Covid-19 was vital to our community, this was the right decision – even though it meant a drop in our income. In order to help safeguard the future of our journalism, the time has now come to reinstate our paywall, However, rest assured that access to all Covid related news will still remain free.
To access all other news will require a subscription, as it did pre-pandemic. The good news is that for the whole of December we will be running a special discounted offer to get 3 months access for the price of one month. Thank you for supporting us during this incredibly challenging time.
We value our content and access to our full site is only available with a subscription. Your subscription entitles you to 7-day-a-week access to our website, plus a full digital copy of that week’s paper to read on your pc/mac or mobile device. In addition, your subscription includes access to digital archive copies from 2006 onwards.
Just want to read one issue? No problem you can subscribe for just one week (or longer if you wish).
Amid the ongoing uncertainty surrounding the Covid-19 pandemic and given current advice and restrictions, the 2021 Eilean Dorcha Festival has been cancelled.
Despite giving it their best shot organisers felt they could not continue with plans with any certainty, and were are unable to guarantee the safety of artists, performers, supporters, volunteers, attendees and the wider community.
An EDF spokesperson said: We understand the disappointment and frustration that comes with reading this as we share and feel it too.’
The next EDF Festival will now provisionally take place on July 29 and 30, 2022.
‘Rest assured we eagerly await the opportunity to safely produce what will be a most memorable EDF to celebrate our fifth birthday in 2022,’ added the spokesperson.
‘We miss you tremendously and can’t wait to reunite in the tent to create some more unforgettable memories with you.’
Current ticket holders will receive an email in due course with details of how to claim a refund on tickets or keep them and guarantee a place at EDF 2022 at 2019 prices.
