It was with a sad heart that the Committee met yesterday and agreed that we had no option but to cancel the Festival. Co-incidental with us coming to that conclusion Norden Farm advised us that they were closing the venue for the next 3 weeks at least.

We are sorry that it has come to this, but the health and safety of all is of the utmost importance.

Thank you for your support and understanding, and stay safe during these difficult times.
