Over & Out

We’re so sorry – but the Musical Mystery Tour is over. This is a very sad moment for us.

In the words of the much-missed, hugely supportive Chief Inspector Gerry McDonald back in 2014: 'Boys, you've created a monster' ...

Sadly, he was right. Our baby's grown too big. 16 years ago, the Musical Mystery Tour started with one person. There are still only five of us, all with full-time jobs, working hard to make Hertford happy. But that's about 100 too few to achieve what's now being asked of us by ‘the powers that be'. The Safety Advisory Group (East Herts Council and the police) has given us a long and onerous 'to do' list. Compliance isn't exactly mandatory. But for us it is impossible. Which means we'll be held personally responsible and liable for anything and everything. In short, we just can't do this anymore.

That's all we can say for now. Don't worry. We're sure Hertford will still be rocking regardless on future August bank holiday Sundays… And Kev 's still on hand to help. We'll go into more detail soon.

Love from Kev Saunders, Rob Guinn, John Brown, Steve Beeston and Amy Jay
