    bimble Is it Spring yet?

    what an utter shambles. Totally agree that any funding they received should be returned. Even if they do manage to create an app in the next 2 days that gives people some money off in some restaurants how is that a "festival" :facepalm:

    You'd think they'd have an interest in informing and responding to Brixton's biggest listings website but it seems not. I can't see this going ahead in any way that resembles the original claims of it being a 'festival'. And where's the app? Surely the whole point of it is that people can download it well in advance and get chance to plan their day?

    I've filled out their 'contact us' form, as an eager punter hoping to find out what's going on. :D

    It's weird that there is nothing up on Facebook ... You'd expect something even if it was shit. If they've genuinely got nothing happening then you'd figure they'd have to say as much

    very amusing. the aftermath of this non event will be a good opportunity to kill off any future attempts at a gentrified Splash, hopefully once and for all. Id imagine there'll be a vacuum there if someone wants to fill it with something proper.

    Maybe they'll quietly change the date to 11 & 12 August 2018 and claim all is well and of course there is not much information available and no app as the event is still a year away...

    Just a fucking sound system in Windrush Square and some stalls would have been something, but fuck this opportunistic, entrepreneurial, tourist-attracting consumerist shoppin'n'eating fest.

    I have just tweeted Brixton Bid, Black Cultural Archives, TfL and Network Rail with a link to the article and asked them for their thoughts as official listed sponsors.

    absolutely. it's really not that hard with a few resources behind you. I reckon you should think about trying to take Splash on in 2018 editor, and getting a little crew involved. Would be able to create the original vision of that guy who always gets airbrushed out of the history (Sam? I forget his name). like you said, it needn't be too big.

    "Concerns about safety and sanitation" - for a non existent shopping and restaurant discount app?
    What a bunch of dishonest jokers.
    I am keen to learn about how much funding they got.

    Was there ever an app at all? This smells like a scam from start to finish.

    How much sponsorship money did she get? How much grant money? Forty pieces of silver?

    Good luck to those trying to get their money back. The lesson to be drawn is - never give it to Ros in the first place.
