GUEST,Myrtle's cook fylde folk & roots festival 2015 cancelled (36) RE: fylde folk & roots festival 2015 cancelled 28 Jul 15

This is a real shame and after going to this event for 23 years the news was received with sadness. The new team had worked so very hard to make this happen and are to be congratulated and thanked for sticking their heads above the parapet and having a go.

For those of us facing serious Fylde withdrawal symptoms, their press release states:

'Whilst the festival will not now be going ahead, we are pleased to note that there will be other live music events taking place in Fleetwood during the weekend of 4th – 6th September. The North Euston Hotel will be holding a Friday night concert in the Ballroom and plan to have live music in the main bar, The Mount Hotel and Queens also plan to have entertainment too, the Steamer Hotel will be celebrating 175 years with free music throughout the weekend, and the Museum are hopeful that they can put on an event. We wish all venues the best for these events, which we wholeheartedly support. Our aim was always to support and encourage the existence of good quality live music in Fleetwood and throughout the Fylde, and we will continue to do this as individuals.'

I would be nice to think that a smaller gathering can continue along the lines of Robinhood's Bay festival - lots of free singarounds, sessions, dancing along with a few larger events promoted by venues.
