Organisers of today’s Welshpool Music Festival have made the wise decision to postpone the event, after listening to the advice of the emergency services.

Overnight storms have delivered some of the worst town centre flooding in memory, and with a huge clear-up operation in place, the decision has been made to cancel.

“Due to flood warnings from the services, as a committee and with the venue landlords we have come to the difficult conclusion to postpone Welshpool Music Festival on health and safety grounds,” said a statement. “We’ll be moving it to a different day where the weather risk isn’t as high as it is today.

“All of our musicians we are already in the process of getting hold of you and to the general public we apologise, but don't you worry Welshpool Music Festival will still rock... just with better weather.”

Emergency services have been stretched to the limit over the past few hours, but there are also some heart warming stories emerging of the people of Welshpool pulling together to help out fellow residents.
