The Somerstock organisers have announced that the annual Family Fun Day will no longer take place in its current form.
The growing popularity of the event and increasing visitor numbers mean it must now operate under an official, council approved, event plan. “As a small team of volunteers we are disappointed that we are no longer able to resource this community event,” explains Bassett. The organising committee would, however, like to see the event continue in another guise, and have said they would be happy to advise any other community group or organisation who would like to run a similar event.
The loss of the Fun Day will enable the organisers to place more emphasis on the popular Art & Photography Exhibition and on providing more events around the town during festival week.
