Important information about Summer Gathering 2018
We regret to inform you that Summer Gathering 2018 is postponed.
This is due to issues with the local authority who have decided not to award the event an agreed license, despite the fact that we booked and agreed the Site with them in February 2018.
Concerns were raised by the police about the suitability of the location and possible flooding on the site although these factors were not a concern for the site at the time of our booking confirmation. Additionaly, in the local press they raised further concerns regarding the plan for the event management, without referring to our comprehensive 75-page event management plan. Lastly it was felt that Derbyshire is not best suited for these types of events because it will lead to excessive drunkenness, and they don’t have the resources to cope.
We are extremely disappointed with their approach and feel that this was a pre-determined plan to make sure the event did not go ahead.
Whist we consider our options and source alternative sites and dates for the event, we wanted to be transparent with everyone to avoid any further inconvenience.
