The Ipswich May Day Festival at Alexander Park, scheduled for Sunday 6th May, has been cancelled due to poor conditions on the park caused by heavy rainfall in recent weeks. The forecast is very poor for the weekend too.
Anyone who has a stall or anything similar booked for the weekend is advised to contact the committee for advice.
The Festival has been held every year since 1978 and is so popular locally that there are, no doubt, enough people around to have been to every single one of them! For many people this Festival marks the start of the outdoor season – certainly it is the first major musical outdoor event in the region.
Stallholders for this year’s event are instructed to contact the organisers via the website Visit www.ipswichmaydayfestival.wordpress.com
