It is with great regret that the Music in the Park event scheduled for the District Council's Hall Leys Park in Matlock this Saturday (1 September) has had to be postponed.
In a joint statement, event organiser Irfan Shabir and Derbyshire Dales District Council, which owns and maintains the venue, Hall Leys Park, said:
"This summer's weather has unfortunately claimed yet another victim. Despite the prospect of a dry weekend, more rain this week has left all parties with no option but to jointly call off Music in the Park as there was no guarantee that setting up the event's infrastructure - involving large vehicles and heavy staging - would not cause significant damage to the Green Flag award-winning Hall Leys, which attracts thousands of visitors every week.
"As much hard work and effort has gone into the organisation of this event, it is hoped it can be rescheduled."
