Eighties pop idol Marti Pellow of Wet Wet Wet fame is in Carlisle this week starring in Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber's Evita.
Organisers of the CockRock music have taken to Facebook to announce the news that they will not be running the event next year.
A film based at Florence Mine in Egremont will premiere on Saturday 15th December.
It's the first time the West End play, which has won more than 20 awards, has visited Cumbria.
Marti Pellow plays 'Che', a character who reflects the voice of the Argentine people.
Evita runs from Monday 10th to Saturday 15th March, with matinee and evening performances.
The organisers of the Big Burns Supper in Dumfries have been congratulated by MSPs in the Scottish Parliament.
The annual festival brings Robert Burns to life through concerts, comedy and a community parade through the town. It will feed Burns Suppers - haggis, neeps and tatties - to 5,000 people.
The members' debate at Holyrood was introduced by Joan McAlpine, MSP for the South of Scotland. She said Dumfries, where the Bard lived and died, was the perfect town to host a festival celebrating his life:
– Joan McAlpine MSP, speaking in the Scottish Parliament
"The town is alive with his spirit. And the Big Burns Supper festival, which opens on Friday, takes full advantage of this unique backdrop. On Saturday, the town centre hosts a free Homecoming carnival, for 2,000 people. They will paint the town tartan to the sounds of the Manchester School of Samba, because the Big Burns Supper is nothing if not eclectic on an epic scale.
"The festival, which lasts until Sunday night, brings Burns back into the heart of the community he loved and the hearts of the people who live there."
Pupils from Queen Elizabeth Grammar School in Penrith performed in the town's main square for the second Winter Droving Festival.
