Coventry's Godiva Festival cancelled

Godiva becomes the latest festival casualty this weekend

Coventry's Godiva Festival, the Midland's biggest free event has been forced to cancel this weekend due to the weather conditions. The Olympic Torch celebration will not be affected and will go ahead as planned.

Echo and the Bunnymen were due to headline the main stage on the first night, with Cast, The View, Pigeon Detectives, Dot Rotten appearing over the weekend at what would have been the events fifteenth year.

The council's statement says

"We're devastated that we've had to make this decision, we've been working for months on this year's festival, and have been working so hard over the past couple of weeks to put on the event despite the weather. We've left the decision as late as we could to give us the best possible chance to beat the weather but conditions in the park deteriorated badly overnight and the showers this morning and forecast for the weekend means that the ground simply can't take any more rain."

Sad loss for the Midland's this year.
