The family friendly Endorse It In Dorset held annually in August at Dorset's Cranborne Chase since 2004 will not be happening again, as organisers confirm they have decided to end while the going's good.

A statement from organisers says, "OK lovely people - finally we can answer your questions. Apologies for the delay, but I hope you understand decisions needed to be made about the future of Endorse It and we needed time. After a truly amazing ten years building up endorse it with the help of a fabulous crew and Endorse It family we have decided to call it a day.

This is largely to do with wanting to end while the going's good. It's a competitive market blighted by the continuous risk of the unpredictable weather. We were never aiming for big things but EIID grew and grew and became the wonderful festival that it was. We all work full time, have families and play in several bands as well as running the event.

In order to continue, serious changes would have needed to be made and we would have needed to commit to the event full time - something which at this moment is not possible to do. Endorse it has brought together so many like minded people and assisted in the creation of many new talented bands, other little festivals and new job opportunities for some, for which we are proud. We will miss it as much as you.

We are looking forward to taking a break from festival organisation and rockin' back with the rest of you and enjoying the season band style! We cannot thank you, our lovely festival goers, and the EIID crew enough for your loyalty, commitment, dedication, assistance and hard work over the years. We could not have produced such a fabulous event without you all and we will miss you guys. But, you know what they say........never say never!!

Cheers then - the EIID organisers'
!"
