Ryton and District Festival cancelled this weekend

It is with great reluctance that we have had to cancel the seventh, eighth, ninth, and tenth sessions of the Festival, due to run this weekend 2nd and 3rd of March. This is due to the adverse weather conditions. Performers and adjudicators alike travel great distances to be with us, and their safety is paramount. Because of the unusually heavy snow, we deem it not safe for people to travel. We deeply regret this, but we are hoping to continue with the eleventh session on Thursday 8th March. Sincere apologies for any inconvenience caused.
