Current situation is that do to problems with licencing caused by scaremongering locals we have decided to move the event for this year to a private school on the outskirts of Chesterfield which has great facilities including showers. The Saw Doctors pulled out of the gig following us reporting low Friday night ticket sales (Possible due to them taking on to many gigs close together in date and distance apart) All other artists are appearing and we are also including late night ceilidhs. Friday night concert will be rearanged to include and additional artist - watch web site for further info.
We did talk to locals early on and many where supportive until miss information about the nature and frequency of events on the site was circulated. Not sure why 2500 vehicles would be visiting the event when the maximum we could have space at events was 1500 people. Ashovert show down the road attracts 10,000 people per day
Hope people will come to the relocated event - which still has a great line up - we intend to return to the Handley Site in future years.
