Shock: Tragedy Strikes At Isle Of Wight Garlic Festival

Tragedy struck at this years annual Isle Of Wight Garlic Festival.

The festival, which has been running for over 25 years, is a mixture of food, entertainment and fun. Attracting larger and larger crowds each year, the organiser's have had their work cut out trying to find suitable acts to perform for the crowds, as they travel from stall to stall, work-station to work-station.

Event organiser Pippa Longboat told us "we were so looking forward to this years event, but we never expected this sort of thing to occur!"

The trouble started when the organiser's booked Bruce Forsyth as compère for the event.

Not being familiar with Forsyth's working methods, and the fact Forsyth had recently changed management, the planets were aligning for disaster.

Booking his services through an agent, the dates were arranged after much haggling over monetary issues. All was set, then disaster hit.

Upon arrival at the event it transpired that Forsyth had not been told exactly what the festival was all about.
