No Rocket Festival in 2009

Sadly the Rocket Festival 2009 won't be taking place. A number of factors have contributed to this very difficult decision but we feel that by taking a year off the team can concentrate on ensuring that Rocket 2010 will be an unforgetable adventure once again. A huge thank you to everyone who came to the festival in 2008 to work, perform and above all enjoy.
