Licence not issued for Roots n Rock Festival

Posted: 13/08/2008 12:50:49

Herefordshire Council’s regulatory sub-committee decided earlier today that it was unable to consider an application for the proposed Rock n Roots Festival that was to take place over the August Bank Holiday weekend at Much Marcle.

The council was therefore not able to issue a licence and the event will not go ahead.

The proposed festival had been extensively promoted with a line-up including some famous rock bands from the 70s and 80s. The event, to be staged at Much Marcle, was to run for four days and would have attracted daily crowds of up to 5,000 people.

Kevin O’Keefe, Herefordshire Council’s legal practice manager, said: “Unfortunately the applicant failed to advertise his planned event in accordance with the requirements of law.

“This was further compounded by a combination of other errors he made in the application process.

“The committee needed to decide firstly whether or not the application had been properly made. They decided it had not.

“We are acutely aware of the disappointment that this decision will cause to many who have purchased tickets and looked forward to this event but having fully considered this matter, have reached a decision that is consistent with previous decisions and within the relevant legalities,” he added.

The applicant, Mr Mike Stephens, has a right of appeal to the Magistrate’s Court.
