The Wannasee organisers are re-scheduling dates for festivals in the North East for next year, and as a consequence there will not be a Wannasee festival at Heritage Park in 2018. We continue to have a very positive relationship with Wannasee and we will review this situation and keep everyone informed.
The Club wishes to express its thanks to the Wannasee team, as we have thoroughly enjoyed hosting their festivals for the last four years. We would also like to thank the Town Council for their support during this time and all those who came along and attended the festivals at the stadium.
Moving forward, this decision now allows the Club to concentrate on closes season pitch preparations much earlier than in previous years, which means that we will be working on securing much higher profile pre-season home friendlies, at a time that better suits the larger professional league clubs.
