Festival Status – 17h00 SAT 17th MAR:

CANCELLED

It is with great regret that we have had to take the decision to cancel tomorrow’s festival. The conditions are not suitable for all for safe and careful play.

 

Weather Outlook for Sunday:
With a sustained wind speed of 17 mph and gusts of up to 31 mph, this will create an effective wind chill of -8 degrees throughout the morning, dropping to -7 degrees in the afternoon.

On the basis of this forecast we have performed a cold weather risk assessment and concluded we cannot mitigate against the identified risks.
Number one was player welfare and safety followed by travel and site safety.
