Pilton Green Man Festival is seeking to get back to its roots this year by toning down the music. Organisers want the event on Saturday, July 18 in Pilton Street to go back to being a traditional community green man day because feel it had become too much of a music festival. Chairman David Butt said the music had almost taken over the whole event: We are particularly concerned about the bottom stage area that attracts a large number of young people who just follow the bands, he said. Theres no public order issue, we havent really had any problems, its just that the bottom end of the street seems to have become a no go area and we have some concerns about the numbers of people. He said it was the wish of people in Pilton and also something founding member Hamish Patrick had wished for before his death in December. There will still be plenty of music Green Man Day kicks off with a procession from Barnstaple Square at 10.45am, making its way to Pilton. There will still be three music stages, but the emphasis will be on local bands and community groups such as Pilton Infants School Choir. The popular Pageant of colourful characters will still take place at 12noon and 3pm and there will be plenty of stalls, games and family entertainment.
