The good news is that we have everything in place for the festival, including the funding, the just giving campaign plus some very generous donations have made this possible.
The bad news is that since the government restrictions were extended a further four weeks, we now have to wait until 19th July and see what that brings. We have plans in place of how we might be able to operate but the big question is “is everyone is comfortable being close to each other again”?
Everyone is being so supportive, and we are desperate to put a slimmed down festival on, but it needs to be done correctly and safely.
If this is not achievable then the whole thing will roll over to 27th & 28th August 2022!

So, all being well, IF the Festival is on, these are the special guests
Due to financial and time constraints, the organisers have decided to focus on a smaller two-day event that will showcase an array of locally based acts, artists and performers, as well as rolling over the previously booked 2020 special guests: “Bruno – A Tribute to Bruno Mars” and “Michael Starring Ben” – a tribute to the King of Pop.
The Festival will have one main stage, the arena, fairground rides, as well as some festival traders, food and drink. Local artists and performers have already been contacted and once finalised, announcements will follow.

We’ll be able to confirm either way in next month’s Scene.
The Phoenix Festival is organised entirely by a volunteer team who do so out of their own enthusiasm for the event and the community and at no financial gain to themselves. All the artists and performers (apart from the special guests) also give their time freely to make the weekend an incredibly special event.
