This year's Llangollen Fringe in its usual form has been cancelled due to the coronaviris crisis.
But the team behind the popular annual event has come up with a number of other ways to keep up interest in the arts and music festival.
Subject to the coronavirus restrictions, this is what they plan to deliver over the summer and into next year:
* July 17-26 - some online Fringe activities details of which are to follow
* September 22 and into 2021 - A series of Town Hall gigs featuring the headline performers they had planned aimed at showcasing the usual eclectic Fringe mix of performances
* After July 17 - a day of entertainment on Centenary Square. This will be a free, public event and will be staged at the first available opportunity. The aim is to make this a fun day which also serves as a showcase for local talent.
In a message to supporters, Fringe organisers say: "If you, or someone you know, can provide a 20-30 minute performance ‘at the drop of a hat’, please get in touch with Chris."
Festival ticket holders are asked to either send an email to the Fringe which organisers say will result in a full refund, or let them hold onto the cash, which will mean:
* You will be welcome to come along to all the planned headliner gigs, free of charge
* Receive 50% off next year’s Festival Ticket and
* Come along to one of the Fringe's monthly comedy clubs
The team adds in its message: "Our videographer has accumulated hours of Fringe footage over the last 10 years or so and we are putting together a compilation of highlights.
"Is there a special moment you would like to see? If so, and we have it recorded, send an email here and we will include it on our website.
"We thank you for your most valued support and hope you can enjoy the ‘little bit of us’ that we are trying our hardest to bring to you this year.
"Let us all hope we can get back to normal, if that exists anymore, soon… and certainly in time for next year."
