This year, there won't be a folk rock festival in Lewes. Organisers are resting the event:
Organiser Steve Harrison said: “In endeavouring to program 2009's event we have realised that we cannot finance the calibre of headline acts we need to maintain the event's growing reputation.
“2009 will therefore be a year of rest during which we will investigate the options for external funding.”
There are hopes that whatever remains of the economy might be able to sustain an event for survivors in 2010.
