Not too sure of the ins and outs, but from what AI gather, yes they did have a cancellation policy. They opened on the Friday. The river next to the event rose beyond the banks on the second day due to really heavy rain much further upstream over night. The field was very adequately drained, but unfortunately the local h and s team at the council, strongly advised them to close ‘to be safe’.
They ignored the advice, but the council came down harder, and thus their insurers didn’t pay out as they had actually opened.
The field never flooded, the river never burst it’s banks either think there was a battle in court but they lost. Hence the silverwear was sold.
