Festi­talia 2018 was called off yes­ter­day on the ad­vice of the or­gan­is­ers’ work­place health and safety con­sul­tant, elec­tri­cal con­trac­tor, venue fa­cil­i­ties man­ager and con­trac­tors try­ing to gain ac­cess to Spencer Park.

Or­gan­is­ers said they were dis­ap­pointed and all pre-pur- chased tick­ets would be re­funded via QTIX.

“Festi­talia 2018, the Ital­ian Fes­ti­val, has been can­celled due to wet weather and re­lated safety con­cerns,” they said.
