Sorry, I was wrong
IN A letter published on January 5, I suggested that The Pauper Kings, who performed outside the Minster on New Year’s Eve, deserved an apology.
Your report of January 3 gave the impression that The Pauper Kings had behaved unprofessionally. They had not, as their many delighted fans, present on the night, could testify.
The letter of January 28 insisting that The Pauper Kings drowned out the sound of the Minster bells is simply untrue.

• WITH regard to John Ridgeway-Wood’s letter of January 28 regarding New Year’s Eve at the Minster, he is mistaken when he says that The Pauper Kings continued to play after the countdown.
I was at the front and watched the band clear away their equipment just after 11.50. It was the DJ that continued to play after midnight obscuring the sound of the bells. Perhaps Mr Ridgeway-Woods can’t tell the difference between ‘live’ music and a DJ.
