A MUSIC festival due to take place at Llanfyllin Workhouse this weekend has been cancelled.

Journey into Steampunk was scheduled to take place this Friday and Saturday at the Workhouse in Llanfyllin, but organisers have cancelled the event with just two days notice.

They have cited various factors, such as bad weather and poor ticket sales.

However, some of the bands booked to play have pledged to take part in replacement indoor gigs at the venue.

Steampunk is a cultural genre which celebrates Victorian era science fiction, fashion and fantasy.

The cancellation was announced in a message on the event's Facebook page.

A statement on the company's website read: "Please accept our apologies for the cancellation of our Steampunk festival for this weekend.

"We thank you for the support you have given us and we deeply regret having to come to this decision."

Several ticket holders and bands left messages on the event's Facebook page expressing their disappointment.
