Sea Ilfracombe 2013 was a very successful event. However, in discussion with working group and following feedback from sections of the Ilfracombe community it was decided that the appeal of the festival could be widened if the festival theme were to be opened out with a small number of additional (not neccessarily maritime) activities.
To this end it was decided that a wide consultation with interested groups/organisations/individuals should take place. It was decided to put the 2014 festival on hold, and to plan for a broader event in 2015.
A meeting is being arranged for Wed 12th March, at 7.30pm at Ilfracombe Golf Club. Everyone with an interest in Ilfracombe and the festival is invited to come along. consultation2014
Unfortunately, Tom and Barbara Brown of Shammick Acoustic, who originated the festival, felt that they did not want to involved in the event if it deviated from a purely maritime theme. We thank them for their invaluable efforts in past years.
So, no festival in 2014 but bigger and better in 2015. Please contact us with your opinions and come along to the meeting in March. More details will be posted in the News section as they become available. Ilfracombe
