6 weeks ago by The Village FestivalFriends, we officially announce that the Village Festival in Edinburgh Gardens will not run in 2018. Ultimately we didn't secure enough funding and we took a stand that we didn't want to ask artists and organisers to work for nothing.
We will return to Edinburgh Gardens refreshed in 2019.3 weeks ago The Village Festival
