Riverside Festival 2012 Cancelled! (news report)
Riverside Festival 2012

Riverside Festival 2012 Cancelled! (News Report)
Stamford Town Council and the organisers of Riverside Festival have had to call off Riverside Festival 2012 at the last minute due to safety concerns following the heavy rain overnight on 5 July. The site is suffering from flooding in various places, including within the St John Ambulance marquee, and if it continues to rain there is a danger that the rivers surrounding the Festival site might overflow.
Vehicles cannot currently use the site, which is waterlogged, which means that the organisers cannot continue with preparations for the Festival, and have reluctantly had to call off the entire Festival.
We are currently in the process of contacting all of the performers and contractors involved in putting together the Festival, and we would appreciate your help in spreading the word.
If you have purchased tickets for the event, please contact us / Stamford Arts Centre in order to arrange for a full refund. We apologise for any inconvenience caused by the cancellation of the Festival.

Riverside Festival - Why Volunteer? (Infomercial)
Why Volunteer?

Riverside Festival - Why Volunteer? (Infomercial)
The Riverside Festival has been the finale of the Stamford Festival for 30 years, originally titled Rock on the Rec and then Music on the Meadows. For the past 10 years it has been run as the Riverside Festival, and in 2007 it was registered as a not-for-profit Limited Company and Registered Charity and is run entirely by volunteers. We rely on volunteers to help us both at the event and year round, and the more volunteers we have the easier it is for everyone. If you are interested in being involved, either during the festival itself, or all the year round, then please contact us via our web site (, or mail us at
