Urban Green Fair September 4th cancelled!

In what comes as late-breaking news, it appears that the Urban Green Fair, held every summer in Brockwell Park, has been cancelled. As recently as Wednesday bloggers on Urban 75 were making ready for it (http://www.urban75.net/forums/threads/free-green-fair-returns-to-brockwe...), and it was ohly when I sat down to write a news feature for this forum about it and checked the fair's website (urbangreenfair.org) that I was amazed to read:


"Due to circumstances beyond our control it is with great regret that we must cancel this years Urban Green Fair. Massive apologies to all involved and, of course, to all of you that were looking forward to the event. We sincerely hope to be able to bring the fair that you know and love back to Brockwell Park in 2012."
