Delight as Ilkley Summer Festival proves a success

Criticism of Ilkley Summer Festival has also renewed support and interest in the event, says one of its directors.
Ward councillor, Anne Hawkesworth (Con, Ilkley) has declared the tenth festival a “huge success” – and planning is already underway for taking the festival into its next ten years.
Organisers of the month-long festival recently ran into criticism from an Ilkley parish councillor.
Councillor Mike Ridgway labelled organisers a “bunch of well-intentioned amateurs”.
But Coun Hawkesworth said: “In spite of trials and tribulations, including the weather, all feedback has been good. We now have to consider how we can refresh it for the next ten years.”
