NWF Taking a Gap Year!
It’s with much regret, however, we have made the decision not to deliver an NWF at Rutland in 2019.
The reasoning to move to Rutland in my eyes was the right one in order to continue delivering an NWF festival.
The Rutland NWF concept was initially a 3-year trial, which brought other sponsors on board which lowered risks but also an opportunity to enhance the NWF experience to all those who attended by being part of a bigger festival footprint.
Unfortunately, this aspect of the plan has not really developed in the way we would have hoped and the work involved to deliver the NWF in its current format is too time consuming and can no longer commit the same time as previous years.
I am still keen to investigate a possible new model and location for 2020. However, I cannot commit any further at this moment in time.
I would like to thank you for your understanding and support the industry and those loyal individuals have given the NWF to date. Plus Anglian Water & The Grainstore Brewery for their support over the last 2 years.
I appreciate we are all busy people so wanted to get this out to you soonest, the decision was only made earlier this morning.
Thank you for your understanding!
