Riverside festival postponed due to wet weather
4:27pm Monday 11th June 2012 in Witney
THE annual Riverside Festival in Charlbury has been postponed because of today's torrential rain.
Organiser Andy Pickard said he had been warned by the Environment Agency that more rain was expected so it would not take place this weekend.
He said: “This is the 16th time year of the Riverside Festival and we have never had to postpone it before.
“I am convinced I have made the right decision bearing in mind the weather and the safety of the public.”
Last year’s festival attracted around 3,000 people.
The festival will be reorganised, but not before the end of June.
