No Asparagus Festival

Posted on by royvickery |

The Independent and the Metro of 4 May report that the Asparagus Festival, due to be held on Saturday 5 May in the Vale of Evesham, Worcestershire, has been cancelled due to a lack of asparagus (Asparagus officinalis). An unusually warm March followed by heavy rain and cool temperatures have left asparagus plants ‘almost dormant’, and the venue where the Festival would have been held is under water.
