Legendary 90s band The Farm and indie reggae band Dreadzone were to be two of the highlights of the family friendly festival from August 9-11, which since it launched in 2012 has raised thousands of pounds for the Teenage Cancer Trust Addenbrooke’s Ward,

However, a spokesman said today: “It is with great sadness that we have to announce that Green Meadows Festival is cancelled. The event lost a considerable amount of money last year which was covered by directors, but with this year’s sales well behind forecast we have reluctantly decided to cancel. As a volunteer run event we simply cannot afford to lose considerable sums again.
