THE alcohol licence has been granted for the Great Wonderfest, following talks between the police and festival organisers.

Police had originally recommended the alcohol license for refusal, due concerns over the paperwork.

They had pulled together a list of conditions for organisers to meet.

However, the applicants queried two — that there be no shots or shooters, and that all bars selling alcohol have a physical boundary around them.

The Isle of Wight Council confirmed an agreement had been reached between both parties.

The Great Wonderfest organisers added: "We are delighted to confirm our license has been granted. We have been working very closely with the local authorities and plans are in full swing to deliver a great summer Wonderfest. We are committed to delivering a premium event to the island with top class entertainment, great facilities and a long term vision to make this a huge success for the Isle of Wight."

It is not clear how the two outstanding issues have been resolved.

The three-day family festival, hosted by children’s TV presenters Dick and Dom, is due to take place at Duxmore Farm, at Downend Road, Newport, from August 1 to 4.

Boyband superstars Busted and The Vamps will headline, alongside Sigma, Example and Conor Maynard.
