New summer date for Isle of Wight event

The organiser of an event on the Isle of Wight has said he has rearranged it to try and attract higher numbers of visitors.

Flyte Big Weekend, which takes place at The Chequers Inn in Rookley, previously took place in October.

However, organiser Jamie Griffin of Flyte Studios told the Isle of Wight County Press that the event will be held earlier in the year in the hope that the weather will be better.

"Last year, it was held in October and it was a bit cold, so by moving it to July, the weather will be much better," he said.

The event will now take place this weekend (from July 23rd 2010) and acts will include The Alex and Phil Extravaganza, Alex Mountford, Stop, All New Influence and Jamie Marsh.

Tourists taking Isle of Wight holidays during the event may wish to stop off to see what is on offer, after enjoying one of the best walks the island has to offer, from Godshill to Rookley.
