Cancelling our Festival due to Covid-19

Like so many things in our nation, our festival has been cancelled due to social distancing and trying to help prevent the spread of this deadly virus.

We hope that you will understand and appreciate all that went into the decision, it was not made easily! We love our music and the years of fun, family and friends that we experience every year.

We are looking forward to planning the next festival to be in July, 2021 and we hope you will enjoy health and a peaceful summer.
