By Claire McWethy

A Weald music event has been cancelled, just months before it was due to be held.

Preparations had begun for the 2014 Cranbrook Music Festival which was due to run over August 30 and 31.

But this week, spokesman Julie Ann Angel announced it had been pulled due to personal issues within the organising team.

She said: “After much thought we have decided to do a Glastonbury and have a fallow year for Cranbrook Music Festival this year. 

"We cannot guarantee that we will be able to dedicate the time needed to make it as brilliant as it deserves to be.

“However, we will come back bigger and better next year.”

Last year hundreds of revellers gathered to watch 50 acts perform at the free community event.

Bands are paid in beer and food and were provided the chance to perform on one of five stage in the High Street.

It was founded in 2011 and raises money for local community projects and local charities.
