The Big Green Gathering has been cancelled. Britain’s largest green festival was due to happen from Wednesday 29th July until Sunday 2nd August 2009 in Somerset in England. Ticket holders and those planning on attending the Big Green Gathering were urged to stay away from the event site. The announcement followed threatened injunction proceedings from Mendip District Council who were supported by the Avon & Somerset Police. The Big Green Gathering was granted a licence by Mendip District Council on 30th June, 2009 and a multi-agency meeting was held on 23rd July but following serious concerns from Mendip District Council and emergency services about public safety and possible crime and disorder MDC applied to the High Court in London for an injunction to stop the event going ahead.
