THE ORIGINAL Conwy Pirate Festival is back on just days after being indefinitely cancelled.

The festival, which had become a hugely popular event in the town, was cancelled indefinitely last week amid allegations of bullying and threats being made within its committee.

Organisers said they were left with no option but to bring an end to the festival, which attracts thousands of visitors each summer.

But today, a spokesperson for the organising committee announced that the event was back on, having caused "so much stress and anxiety" to businesses and visitors.
