Huddersfield Food and Drink Festival falls victim to the weather!

Huddersfield Live, organisers of the Huddersfield Food & Drink festival due to take place in Greenhead Park from August 3 to 6, have had to make the hard decision to cancel the event due to the weather and ground conditions.

In a message to participants, Huddersfield Live say:

“After 48 hours of incessant heavy rain, and in consultation with the Council’s Parks Management Team and those traders already on site, this weekend’s Food and Drink Festival has been cancelled with immediate effect.”

“As you can imagine, ground conditions underfoot are extremely poor and vehicular access is now severely limited to roadways and hardstanding areas only. Everyone’s safety is our upmost concern along with creating a great experience for all.  This would not have been a good experience this weekend for anyone entering the event in the park.”

This is obviously very disappointing for all concerned but seems like the right decision with more rain forecast into the weekend.
