The BBFF team received the unfortunate news today that Watford authorities have denied our Temporary Event Notice application to hold the event at Cassiobury Park. We have worked very closely with police in good faith in order to find a site which would cause minimum disruption to residents, and to the security arrangements around the Grove hotel, but have been frustrated during the last few weeks with a lack of engagement from both council and the police at a higher level.
Read our full statement here to the Watford Observer.
You will be pleased to know we are appealing this decision and will keep you informed every step of the way – this is by no mean curtains for the Bilderberg Fringe Festival and rest assured our keynote speakers and many of our music acts will still be performing over the weekend!
We have secured a camping area close to The Grove – if you would like to book your space at a very reasonable rate please email with name, contact details and your camping arrangements.
We would like to underscore that this is the time for us to unite more than ever, exercise solidarity in the face of bureaucracy and help one another demonstrate our feelings towards Bilderberg though creativity, discussion and positivity.
The Bilderberg Fringe Festival thanks you all for your understanding and patience with the red-tape curveballs we’ve been thrown!
