The exciting new travel festival which was due to be held on the 3rd and 4th November 2023 has been rescheduled to 6th January 2024, after the unexpected closure of its Pittville Pump Room venue, for emergency remedial maintenance work.

The inaugural festival was forced to postpone after Pittville Pump Room was closed for emergency remedial work just days before the festival opened its doors. “We were forced to move the dates as there were just no suitable alternate venues available at short notice.
