Festival on the Farm at Purton, this weekend, has been cancelled due to the inclement weather. The field which was to be used as a camp site and overflow car park has been too wet to mow.
Only about a third of the total tickets have been sold as a result of the rain and these have been refunded.
However, the original line-up of bands will now hold a small music festival at Riffs Bar, Hook, from July 20 to 22 to raise money for the festival’s three charities – Goldenhar Family Support Group, Purton Helping Hand and the Your Day Foundation. Five bands will play on Friday night, eight tribute acts on Saturday and another eight on Sunday.
