Festival will not go ahead at Adur Rec

A FESTIVAL controversially planned to take place on the Adur Recreation Ground will no longer be held there, according to the organisers.

Alexander Dau, founder of Holi One Festivals, said his team was recommended to take a look at Adur Recreational Ground for the region’s Holi One festival, but found it was not suitable.

The team is now seeking an alternative venue, details of which will follow on the its website and Facebook pages.

“Health and safety is of the up most importance as it underpins the success of any festival or event,” said Mr Dau.

“We take the concerns of residents and local authorities very seriously and would never propose holding any event without going through the proper channels and presenting the event to the Safety Advisory Group,” he added.
