Avalon

In the 29 November 1996 issue, we published a piece entitled ’Trading secrets with the tabloids’. It was inadvertently stated that Avalon, the management and public relations company for comedy artists, practised a school of PR of blackmailing newspapers into publishing articles about Avalon’s lesser known clients for fear that the newspapers would not be able to speak to Avalon’s more well known clients in the future.

We accept that this allegation is completely untrue and should not have

been published. We apologise to Avalon and its directors Jon Thoday and

Richard Allen-Turner for the embarrassment caused by our article. We

have agreed to pay them a suitable sum by way of damages and all their

legal costs.
