Great Linford Waterside Festival bows out in 2015

An update about the festival in 2015:

“After many years of running a hugely successful event, the voluntary organisers of the Great Linford Waterside Festival have decided that they will not be running the festival this year. The free 3 day event has taken place in the park during June. It has provided a free community-focused event for local families, and many artists have had the opportunity to demonstrate their skills, while charities have been able to reach a wide audience.

The trustees of the organisation have agreed that despite the success of the event, and the evident enjoyment of those who attend, they are not able to run it any longer. The festival has been run by a voluntary committee and nearly all the work is carried out by a very small group of volunteers. However, in the last few years, fewer and fewer volunteers have come forward to help run it and the massive support needed over the weekend itself has dwindled. The event has also required an increasingly heavy organisational burden to make sure it is safe for all to enjoy.

The trustees are considering what the next steps will be, and updates will be publicised through this festival website and the official Great Linford Waterside Festival Facebook page.”

The organisers would like to thank all those who have supported the festival over many years.
