Professor Preston unable to attend literary festival


The organisers of The Gibunco Gibraltar International Literary Festival regret to announce the cancellation of Professor Paul Preston’s talk on his book The Spanish Holocaust. The cancellation is due to Professor Preston’s inability to travel to Gibraltar because of ill health.

The organisers are hoping to find another world-class speaker for the festival, details of which will be announced as soon as they can be confirmed. In the meantime, those who have already bought tickets for the Paul Preston event may choose to exchange the tickets for another event or will be entitled to a refund. An announcement in this respect will be made shortly.

‘This is truly disappointing news,’ said the Hon Neil Costa MP, Minister for Tourism, Commercial Affairs, Public Transport and the Port, ‘but totally understandable given the circumstances surrounding Professor Preston’s cancellation. I’m confident the festival organisers will be able to secure the participation of an equally eminent speaker.’
