Trowbridge Village Pump Festival has been cancelled. A statement says:

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.

Festival Director
