Summer Days festival

Summer Days, the new boutique music and food festival that launched this year, has been cancelled.

This year’s event was scheduled to take place at Clitheroe Castle between 6 and 9 July with headliners Simply Red, Jools Holland and Echo & The Bunnymen.

A spokesman for Summer Days said: "After serious consideration we are heartbroken to announce that Summer Days festival 2016 will not take place. We have looked at every angle possible to keep the event live but due to a combination of factors including rising cost and newly arisen logistical obstacles we have no choice but to call Summer Days off.

"All ticket holders will of course receive a face value refund and should contact their ticket vendors directly.

"Support for Summer Days has been both incredible and humbling and makes this decision all the harder. You have our heartfelt apologies. Thank you again for all your support."
