Warrington's Famfest CANCELLED


Organisers of FamFest Warrington, a new family focused festival due to come to Warrington next month, have today announced the difficult & heart-breaking decision to cancel the event.
The festival was set to take place at Orford Jubilee Park on Sat 11 and Sun 12 August, but due to unforeseen circumstances, organisers have had to cancel the festival for 2018.
They understand this will be hugely disappointing for all who have watched the plans grow and purchased tickets to the event. A full statement is available to view on the festival facebook page @famfestwarrington
Ticket holders will be able to get a full refund by contacting the ticketing agent that they purchased tickets through.
For questions regarding refunds please contact: TicketQuarter on 0344 8000 410 or Quay Tickets on 0843 208 0500
Festival Director Pete Pinnington said: It is with huge regret and disappointment that I have had to cancel FamFest Warrington from taking place. It’s always been an ambition of mine to host a family festival in my hometown of Warrington and I’ve put a huge amount of time, effort and money into the planning and preparation for this event. It’s heart-breaking that due to time constraints and mounting costs, the event cannot go ahead. 
“The decision was not made lightly, but with unexpected expenses increasing, I would have had to scale back the festival in order to proceed, and I wasn’t prepared to compromise on the quality of event I had promised to the public.
“I would like to take this opportunity to thank those businesses, ticket holders & media who have supported FamFest Warrington, and sincerely apologise for any disappointment and inconvenience caused”.
