Exeter Festival Fails to Sell Out

Tickets for Exeter summer festival are not selling well.

There are over forty events during the two week long festival - but only a handful have sold out so far despite it having started on Friday.

Organiser Val Wilson blames three things: "we are having this glorious weather for one, the second is the World Cup and the third is the recession."

She continued: "I think we'll get a walk up, that's what I'm hoping, that people will think 'oh actually I will go'. I think people are genuinely wondering whether they have enough money"
