Event Cancellation: The Streets Edinburgh International Film Festival
It is with great regret that we announce Mike Skinner will be unable to attend the Edinburgh International Film Festival this Sunday 19th June, due to unforeseen personal circumstances.
His event, The Streets Edinburgh International Film Festival, scheduled for Sunday 19th June, will be cancelled with all ticket holders refunded in full. The singer will also be cancelling a number of festival dates.
Comment from Mike Skinner: “It is with great regret that I'm unable to be in Edinburgh on Sunday for the Edinburgh International Film Festival. My wife and I are expecting a baby and there have been some sudden unexpected circumstances involving the birth that we need to be in hospital for over the weekend. I was very much looking forward to participating in this year’s event and presenting my own take on my favourite films and hope the Festival has a fantastic year. I am sure I will be back to visit the film festival in some capacity in the future.”
James Mullighan, Director, Edinburgh International Film Festival added: “We are deeply saddened to hear that Mike is unable to attend and our thoughts go out to him and his family at this time.”
