Message from Jon: "We are delighted that Keiron is able to step in at short notice for what will be a great night. Steve Evans is very disappointed that he cannot attend as previously advertised. Most of you know Steve's medical situation and that despite it and a gloomy initial prognosis two years ago he has battled on against all odds in an open and inspirational way but at this time with his condition and appointments with his medics next week it would not be sensible to make the journey to Hull. I regard Steve as a great old friend to me and my Dad from Wolverhampton Circle of Magicians days and those of you that have met and seen Steve know what a skilled performer and funny guy "the man from the council is". I know that HMC members will join me in sending good wishes to Steve."
