The team behind Swindon's MFor Festival, have announced that the event is now financially unviable to keep going.

The team released the following statement: "MFor Festival has faced a number of challenges and it is with heartfelt sadness that organisers announce that, due to the current climate, it is financially unviable to keep going."

MFor Festival is said to have been faced with a perfect storm of rising costs from artists and suppliers abd for event production, alongside the loss of skilled workers due to the pandemic, and customers now dealing with the cost-of-living crisis. 

The MFor team say this has left them with no choice but to make this very difficult decision.

All paying customers will be refunded to their payment card. This process is said to have already begun and should be completed over the next 10 days.  

The MFor team say they remain '100% committed' to bringing great events to Swindon and, after the huge success of Pimms in The Park at Lydiard Park in June 2022, attracting over 30,000 people, they are pleased to announce it will be back in 2023.  

A spokesperson added: "We would like to take to opportunity to thank everyone for their continued support including our partners at Lydiard Park and Swindon Borough Council, the community, suppliers, staff and most of all, our customers."
