THE Herefordshire festival, Beer on the Wye has been cancelled for this year.

Due to be held at Hereford Rowing club, July 10 - 12, the sad decision has been made to cancel the festival.

Mark Haslam, Festival Co-ordinator said: “We realise a lot of people will be disappointed, but we have taken this regrettable decision to protect our volunteer staff, contractors and festival-goers.

"However, be assured we will be back next year better and stronger than ever.”

Beer on the Wye will return to its riverside home in July 2021.
