Worstead Festival Cancelled

This years Worstead Festival, which draws around 30,000 people yearly, has been cancelled to allow for improvements for 2011.

The three day festival runs annually in the small village of Worstead near North Walsham over the last weekend in July, and has been drawing in people from far and wide for 45 years.

The festival has been cancelled to allow for rejuvenation and to make for a bigger and better attraction on its return in 2011. In its place a smaller music festival will be organised reflecting the music generally offered during the weekend. The Friday evening run which attracts around 400 people each year will still go ahead.

The music festival will take place over the same weekend as the festival, from July 23 to July 25.
