Colchester Free Festival founder steps down
5:29pm Tuesday 9th October 2012 in News
THE founder of the reformed Colchester Free Festival has announced he is stepping down from his role as organiser.
Ben Howard’s relaunch of the Castle Park spectacular in August 2010 featured a series of stages with performances by local bands, a children’s area and more.
Two successful follow-ups have established the festival as a major music and arts event in Colchester’s calendar celebrating what the town has to offer.
This week, Mr Howard told fellow members of the festival team he was proud of the last three festivals, but felt it was time he would move on.
