THE THREE DAY music festival planned for the Essex Sports Village in Purfleet Road, Aveley has been cancelled.
YT understands that the financial backer and former owner of Grays Athletic, Mick Woodward has written to the local residents.
In a letter seen by YT the organiser has thanked the residents for attending a meeting last Monday and hopes it is the beginning of a “long lasting and positive relationship with every one.”
He goes on to inform the residents that they are postponing the event “for the forseeable future”
The event, ear-marked for the August Bank Holiday weekend had hoped to have Katherine Jenkins, Westlife and Boyzone.
The organisers have promised to keep the residents informed regarding their plans “If they do change in anyway”
Concerns regarding the festival had also been made by local councillors Wendy Herd, Amanda Prevost and John Cowell.
