Plans for Gravity Fields 2020 'already taking shape' as production company announces it will not be involved in Grantham festival
Plans for the next Gravity Fields Festival in 2020 are taking shape, says the district council, despite the news that the production company behind the festival will no longer take part.
Rosa Productions, which has been involved in the festival since it began in 2012, says it is moving on to other challenges. The production company has created and delivered four Gravity Fields Festivals, including last year's event which attracted a record number of 83,000 people over five days.
Responding to the announcement, a spokesperson for South Kesteven District Council said: “Gravity Fields has become a fantastic festival that attracts visitors from far and wide to celebrate science in Grantham, the proud home town of Sir Isaac Newton.
“Rosa Productions has played a central role in helping to grow Gravity Fields into the success that it is today, and we are grateful to Rosemary, her team, and other partners for sharing their expertise and shaping the festival. However,we completely understand that after nine successful years, Rosemary may wish to pursue new ventures. We wish her every success for the future and sincerely hope that she will come and enjoy next year’s Gravity Fields as our guest.
“Work has already started on Gravity Fields 2020 with a very successful community meeting at Grantham’s Kings School in August, full of creativity and fresh ideas. Plans are already taking shape for yet another spectacular celebration of science in Grantham.”
