Cancellation Of The Really Wild Festival

10 Apr

Sorry to be the bearer of such sad news. Our thoughts are with Julia, the family and all the Really Wild team. 

Follows is the statement sent to trade stands from the festival: 

It is with regret that we are emailing to let you know that the Really Wild Festival to be held 24th& 25th May 2014 in St Davids has been cancelled.

Brian Powdrill has almost lost his battle with cancer and we, the Directors, feel that it is impossible for Julia to continue to organise the Festival and nurse Brian. With the best will in the world Julia has continued because she is so passionate about the event, but even with the fantastic assistance of Ali Belton and Diane Corbett we have decided not to run it this year and have taken the unprecedented step of cancelling.

Julia and Brian founded and set up the Really Wild Festival with a lot of their own funds 10 years ago to enable local producers this far west to show off their wonderful products. Together they have been a successful and hard-working team and it is very much against Julia’s wishes that we have taken this decision on this occasion.

We can only apologise for all the inconvenience and disruption that we know this information will inevitably cause you and hope you will understand. Your application fees will be returned in full by 25th April.

    What sad, sad news – this couple have worked so hard to build up this festival and I love it’s new home at the palace.
    It’s a super festival and brings a lot of visitors and money into the area.
    My thoughts are with Brian and Julia and their family

    My thoughts are with Brian and Julia and their family, such sad, sad news.

    It’s the best decision, but hate there will not be a festival this year.
