Hugh Phillimore, the festivals Independent promoter has this to say on the festivals final event  “2017 had been intended as our last festival, but our customers encouraged us to continue, so we did! However, having to postpone the festival in both 2020 and 2021 due to the pandemic has taken its toll and we have had to move on.  We couldn’t leave without one last farewell, so, there will be fireworks, there will be feasts and there will be tears before bedtime, but we intend to make this year one hell of a party as we plan to go out with a bang!”
