Electric Gardens called off

Festival organiser taken seriously ill

This year’s Electric Gardens Festival has been cancelled.

The event which was due to take place on in August at Mount Ephram Gardens, Faversham, Kent, is no longer happening as a key festival organiser has been taken to hospital with a life threatening illness.

In a statement released on the festival’s website the promoters said: “It’s with great sadness that we can officially announce that due to unforeseen circumstances Electric Gardens 2008 has been cancelled. In February a key player in organising the event was taken to hospital with a life-threatening illness. With no foreseeable date as to when he will be allowed home, let alone back to work, we have been forced to remover or interests from Electric Gardens and concentrate on our key businesses.”

It is not know whether the festival will return next year.
