Terrible news, but I'm sure that the organisers have made the right decision. Very sorry to hear of this, perhaps a Fundraiser event will be on the cards (as several had to do last year due to weather and flooding) as I'm sure there will be lots of funding issues with this late cancellation!

I was camping there last weekend for the steam rally and in the field where the arena was , they had a machine pumping the water off the field from Thursday nights storm. After that it dried up very quickly... but i suppose if rain is forcast all weekend it would be pointless. I commend the organisers from the steam rally for how quickly the problem was dealt with.

It is a great shame that this event has to be cancelled. I have been at Pickering Traction Rally a few years ago when the flooding was indeed serious, we coped and I Know Simon Boak the organiser will not have taken the decision to cancel lightly.
I was to work on Health and Safety at both the Traction Rally and the Festival, but at late notice had to go to Beirut to work , sounds as if this was a much safer option.
Lets hope Simon has the courage to try again next year.

I made comment that perhaps the rain was a blessing.

Cynic

PS The information on ticket refunds is slipping backwards in time. Perhaps I should not comment on this?

Dear Cynic,

As Joe rightly says, perhaps you should register and tell us all you know. I'm intrigued as to your cynicism. As far as I am aware, The Events Office have posted information to ticket holders stating their intentions. Also, why was the rain a blessing? It looked like a fine event to me. I drove past the site last Wednesday and everything seemed to be progressing nicely. Marquees were up and fencing was all in place. It's just a pity about the damned weather! Again, I await your views.

Good news Pickering Folk Festival is to be rescheduled for next year 23, 24, and 25 May 2009.
Lets hope this does not clash with anything
See www.theeventsoffice.co.uk for details of refunds etc
The acts etc are yet to be booked, but lets hope for a similar one to that planned for this year
I still believe this years event was cancelled due to genuine weather problems.

erm.......Ryedale Folk Weekend actually, about ? 10 miles away. Means you can do both I guess, I think we will!

Both sets of organisers seem pretty chilled about the situation, so I guess there is no need for any of us to get to excited about it either.

I've just spoken to the Events Office and it seems that the refunds are being cleared slowly. I was told that the organisers are having to sell the showground itself to raise money, which should be completed in around 10 days, after which all refunds will be processed at once.

Sorry, didn't ask that, Ruth. I am assuming that their scheduled events, including the Folk Festival, will still go ahead. Presumably they will have to pay the new owners rent or maybe organise it on a joint basis.

If you want to ring them to confirm, the number is 01759 301547.

Unfortunately, we won't be going as it's Ryedale Folk Weekend at the same time.

Refinancing businesses in the middle of a world-wide credit crisis is one of the more trickier aspects of entrepreneurship at the moment. Without seeing the balance sheet of this business it is impossible to draw any firm conclusions from their "ownership" of land.

Hi, I am so glad that I have found this. I have been sooo frustrated with respect to getting a refund for the festival. After many emails, left messages and writing letters we contacted the Trading Standards and also Consumer Direct. I have just sent a letter to the Events Office via registered post to see if i get a response to that.
I am amazed that someone has actually been able to get through to the office and speak to someone. Lets hope that the refinds start to be paid soon.

I note that the initial link posted by the events office on this thread to buy was for an agency. It occurs to me that the refunds ought to be from them if that is where you sent your money - but I am not sure, just that the legal position may be worth checking.

I was wondering if they had any form of insurance, such as weather insurance. I don't know if this is the sort of thing the festival organisers take out. Maybe, the way the weather is going these days, it would be a sensible precaution although I know from doing film shoots that it can be very expensive.

Hi,
I am waiting too and glad I found this forum - I thought I was being left till last as I was being too patient! I got through a couple of weeks ago and was told that their insurance did not cover flooding and so they had sold one of their properties and were just waiting for final bits to go through and they would start issuing refunds at start of October - still waiting so I'll be chasing them up again this week. However, it looks increasingly like stalling tactics as in September I was told my cheque was waiting on desk to be issued the following week - and another story when I phoned prior to this. I am suspecting I will have to chalk this one up to experience - and will think twice before booking in advance for anything else especially with the run of wet weather these past years. Fingers crossed a cheque arrives this week!

It will be interesting to see what happens from that but also if we do get our money back as promised to you Sarah.
I am still amazed that you have been able to actually talk to someone.
