Popular local festival won't be going ahead this summer
Following ten successful editions of good vibes, local talent and big stars, our favourite local festival has announced that it will not be taking place in summer 2020.
Metal has revealed that Village Green won't be going ahead this year and it is looking to "secure an independent future for the popular, community-focused festival" and will hopefully be returning in 2021.
The announcement also stated: "We are in the process of developing a plan that has place-based skills development for the live entertainment industry at its heart – delivering Village Green, and other events as part of its programme.
"We will use the year of 2020 to continue to develop this plan, focusing initially on a skills offer and the children’s festival day Village Green: Next Generation – taking the opportunity to fully align the programme with OFSTED and curriculum requirements."
The last ten events has seen the likes of Busted, Fun Lovin Criminals, Nothing But Thieves, Rag n Bone Man, Kate Nash and many more head to Chalkwell Park for a day and evening of good music.
