No funding for Fire Festival 

Oie Voaldyn marks the return of summer 

The May Fire Festival will not go ahead this year due to funding. 

The organisers of the annual Oie Voaldyn event say they've not been able to raise sufficient funds to cover all the overheads and infrastructure costs. 

Each year up to 100 performers act out the battle between winter and summer at Peel Beach - which marks the return of summer and ends with a firework display. 

It's hoped the event can continue next year if sponsors can be secured.
