Llandudno's Victorian festival faces the axe because there is no-one to run it, reports the Daily Post (p3).

The Llandudno Heritage Trust decided to stop organising the profitable festival after attracting criticism about a lack of Victorian content, and the practical problems of generating income.

However, the festival generates£1.7m in income and attracts 300,000 visitors to the town. Tim Manson, Conwy CBC's assistant director of tourism and culture, said the May bank holiday festival acted as a 'good kick-start to the season' and that the council would continue to pledge£3,000 towards this year's festival budget.

The organisation Forward Llandudno is said to be having informal talks about taking over the reins of the festival's.
