SATURDAY’S Pizzafest live music and pizza event at the Fulford Arms, York, has been called off.
Dan Gott, from event curators Snakerattlers, says: “Unfortunately, we’ve had to cancel Pizzafest this coming weekend due to the current Covid-19 situation.
“All the bands on the line-up will be playing at another Pizzafest in the future, when things have calmed down. We suggest you keep your ticket for the next Pizzafest, as it will still be valid.”
Before Monday’s Government statement on avoiding unnecessary social contact in pubs, Dan had said, “all being well”, he hoped a Pizzafest could take place in June. Instead, the date now will be announced in due course.
“Ticket purchasers for Saturday are entitled to a £10 refund, which can be made by emailing email@example.com,” he added.
Saturday’s Pizzafest would have been an all-day event with “a wealth of tip-top, dance-til-you-drop, underground garage rock bands from throughout the UK”. Half way through, a truckload of free pizza would have arrived, with the invitation to “eat as much as you like”.
The line-up was to have included York motorpunk rockers Segregates launching their new vinyl single, Preach To Me. On the bill too were Snakerattlers; Thee Girl Fridays; The Strays; The Sleazoids; Surf Muscle; Hellfire Jack; The Bikini Bottoms; What’s Wrong With Homer?; Percy and Gillman.
