18-19th June 2022 Higginson Park
Update: 25/05/2022 –
It is with regret that we have taken the decision to cancel this year’s Marlow Moves family music festival in Higginson Park. Following the lifting of pandemic restrictions, we were eager to bring a fresh, original music festival to Marlow for families to enjoy together. Unfortunately, our preparations for the event have been impacted by a number of factors. These include uncertainty caused by the Omicron variant which delayed the start of our promotional activity early in the year and more recently the rising cost of living impacting ticket sales across the industry. With rising operational costs including fuel and a resurgence in events competing for a shrinking amount of disposable income, we do not feel it is viable to deliver the music festival for 2022.
Our faith in this project has not diminished but rather than fight against all odds, we feel it will be better to reschedule for 2023. We will continue to work in partnership with Marlow over the coming year to deliver a fantastic music festival in 2023 – stay tuned for some exciting future announcements!
If you have purchased tickets for Marlow Moves, you will receive a full refund very shortly. If you have any queries, please email email@example.com
We apologise for any disappointment this causes but look forward to welcoming you again in 2023.
Feel the beat and enjoy the heat in Higginson Park this June as a brand new family friendly music festival comes to Marlow with side show entertainments, children’s workshops, street foods and bars of distinction. The event features two stages with an eclectic line up of music spanning a range of genres blended for maximum satisfaction.
Saturday: 10am – 9pm
Sunday: 11am – 7.30pm
