Press release from Festival Director

The organisers of the Trowbridge Village Pump Festival always want to ensure that it is the best event we can deliver. However, a range of factors are conspiring to make it impossible to guarantee we can do this in 2011. So, reluctantly, we plan to take a sabbatical so that we can find solutions to the problems we face in time for 2012.
First and foremost we want to promote a quality line-up of artists and great venue you have come to expect; increasingly more money has to be paid out in advance to do this. But in these difficult times people are, understandably, more reluctant to commit their hard-earned cash to buy tickets in advance. Also the credit card companies want to ring-fence all ticket sales income in case the event doesn't run for any reason. So we get squeezed in the middle.
Add to that the increasing costs of ensuring it is the safest, most family friendly Festival environment we can make it and, this year, it's not looking financially feasible.
We really hope to be back in 2012 and, in the meantime, we wish to express our sincere thanks for your support during the 38 years since we started. We assure you that all tickets sold already will be refunded and we will not breach the trust we have built with you at any price.
Christine Briars
Festival Director

I'm really upset that my favourite English festival has decided to take a year out, although having said that, it HAS BEEN a long time since I visited. I'm sorry. I can fully understand the reasons and hope that Chris and her team will come back even fitter in 2012. Good luck. Sue

I applied to sell my lemonade but the pitch fee was far too high, so decided not to persue it.
