Bloom Festival Moves To Chepstow Racecourse

Organisers of the lovely Bloom Festival have announced a change of venue for 2009, and the weekend-long event will now be held at Chepstow Racecourse.

The change comes after talks with residents of the previous venue, West Littelton Down, and festival organisers broke down. However, Bloom seem positive about the new site, which is very close to Chepstow rail station and easily accessible by car and bus

The festival, which will take place 14-16 August, has a massive line-up including Peggy Sue, Alessi’s Ark, Johnny Flynn and Leisure Society. Weekend tickets are just £75 and day tickets are £30.
