A DANCE festival will not be held in Somerset as originally planned.

Another World Festival was set to take place on March 9-11 at Pontins, in Brean Sands.

The event will now take place five months later at Cotswold Airport, in Gloucestershire, on August 3-5.

Organisers have said on their Facebook page: “Pontins have recently experienced numerous issues at their holiday park in Brean. Concerns that have prompted action from the local police, Environmental Health and Sedgemoor District Council licensing team placing the park’s premises license in jeopardy. Pontins have since reacted by attempting to impose significant restrictions and changes to our booking.

“After decades of organising successful events, this is one of the hardest decisions we’ve made. We apologise unreservedly for disappointment and frustrations. We too, feel this.

“Your enjoyment and experience are what matters most to us and we would not have been able to deliver this and achieve our mission under these new restrictions.”
