‘Saddened’ Banwell residents have told of their disappointment after Hazy Days music festival aborted plans to move to the village.

The festival, which made its name at Weston’s Tropicana, was set to be held at Banwell Football Club in August.

The Hazy Days team said it was ‘excited by the great opportunity’, but the football club pulled out due to a ‘negative response’ on social media.

Banwell Parish Council expressed its disappointment at its meeting on Monday.

Chairman Jim Weston said: “We are saddened to learn Hazy Days has been withdrawn from Banwell so soon after it was announced.

“We are acutely aware of the traffic impact and we would have welcomed the opportunity to work with the organisers to minimise any disruption should the event have proceeded.

“In principle the parish council will support events in the village to raise monies for local charities and will work to minimise disruption.
