 Cancellation of KAC Dialogue, Leicester 20 September 2016 
KAC regrets that we have been forced to postpone the dialogue ‘Coming in from the cold: dilemmas and solutions about vaping in workplaces and social spaces’ which was scheduled to take place at the King Power Stadium, in Leicester, on Tuesday 20 September.
Leicester City FC now have a cup fixture on the same day and the room we were due to use is now unavailable to us.
We are discussing an alternative date, later in the year, along with our local partners and will announce this as soon as we are able to do so.
We regret any inconvenience, but the circumstances of the cancellation are beyond our control.
