Annual Kent festival Grassrootz is no more.

THE LONG-RUNNING annual music festival, Grassrootz, held in Kent, has decided to close. Coordinator Nick Cheesman says, "It has been a great success and the positive response has been overwhelming, but we feel it has run its course after five successful years." The charity Life & Soul Youthwork will continue such initiatives as street work an Innervation school band and, possibly, a youth music café.
