Yes, sorry I couldn't resist after having a Rik from the Young Ones reminder last week.
Yet they could access via Brixton Water Lane and use the plenty of space there that is nowhere near the build site or vehicle routes, and is open and accessible....
I'm sure they could, but said that their assessment based on teacher pupil ratios said No, when combined with lorries and fences etc.
Loads of space the school can still use....
They don't have to go anywhere near the lorries and fences....nowhere near
From my experience at other gigs/festivals, guests are give no choice about paying. I really think it's an underhand way to supposedly give back to the community. If they really gave a fuck, they'd take some money out of their own vast earnings from the event.
Do you want to tell them that rather than me?!
Not especially. If they want to find excuses not to do something and use H&S as the reason, then it's up to them.
The school didn't even know it was happening, so it is quite likely that having discovered it was happening they didn't immediately have all the info about vehicle routes, etc... Lambeth Events have admitted that they don't have the resources to answer enquires in a timely manner.
Two free pairs of tickets are up for grabs: Win two pairs of tickets for the Field Day festival in Brockwell park, Fri 1st – Sat 2nd June 2018
The question should have been a multi choice on how much Lambeth were being paid by the promoters !
I'm sure we'll have lots of follow up stuff on Buzz after the festival....
Some of the arguments on the Brockwell Tranquility seem to be getting more and more bizarre. Now they're posting up links to stories about 'watching birds and mental health' and trying to demand drug testing at the festival because of the tragic death of two people at the Portsmouth festival.
The drug testing suggestion was a comment about testing the content of people's drugs in light of the recent festival deaths; not checking intoxication. It's a politically sensitive but ultimately sensible idea.
Boomtown and a couple of other festivals did this via The Loop.
You give 'em a sample of your stash and they test it for safe use.
It's a good idea.
Some truly daft comments on there.....
It did happen briefly at the fridge many moons ago, but the council put a stop to it, iirc.
Absolutely, although the real culprit for many drug deaths is government policy.
I can't see gov policy changing anytime soon, so anything that helps in the meantime is a good thing....
A bit like objection to a planning application ... Less is more. Which is how the legal action is being managed.
Some of these hashtags, FFS
#parktheft. #teardownthatwall #giveusbackourpark
Some pretty good hashtags from people who probably feel they are being excluded from the park they use everyday. Brockwell Park is an open space that was created to be used by people from all walks of life, rich and poor, but here is an event that is denying anyone without a ticket zero access to parts of the park they like to use.
You think so? I have a lot of sympathy for their cause but "parktheft" is just daft hyperbole.
parktheft is fairly much on the money as it is not possible to cross Brockwell park in any straight lines. It's all about now having to 'go around'. Lambeth have allowed a 'screw you if you don't like it', attitude to prevail from the organisers.
We'll have to disagree, then.
They really are getting rowdy on Twitter. I wonder if anyone goes to picket the site when people turn up - that would be quite entertaining to see.
NIMBYs be NIMBYing but Lambeth are blatantly just pushing things as far as they can, softening the locals up for more and more of the same, they can see pound signs in them there fields. We should run a book on how long the County Show lasts till it has to be replaced by a privately run expensively ticketed event. i give it 3 years tops.
90bd music 'won't be kind to butterflies' y'know....
At least they can fly off though....
Yep. And every time the community pushes against their latest money raking wheeze it'll end up being used against them in the end: "Well seeing as you wouldn't let MegaCorp use the park for three months this summer we now have no choice but to start charging for the Country Show..."
Now they’ve angered Joni Mitchell
