An annual event. usually rubbish, and today no exception. Well to be fair, marginally better than in the past.
Three stages, the bandstand in Princess Gardens, pedestrian street outside Costa, and Wastegate.
Aged rockers at the bandstand, could at least play, guy on acoustic guitar outside Costa could not.
As always, badly organised.
Why are no lessons ever learnt?
No publicity. Nothing in the town, other than at the bandstand to announce the event.
Why three stages, when not enough talent for one?
If three stages, one should be an acoustic set outside Caffe Macchiato, not at Wastegate.
Restrict to bandstand only, or if wish to have s second set, then an acoustic set outside Caffe Macchiato.
People handed out bottled water. A good idea, only not the organisers, a promotion by Specsavers.
Why not have street food in Princes Gardens?
And please not the pink ice cream van belching out toxic fumes at toddler height.
And to empathise further the bad organisation, timed to coincide with a three day event at the West End Centre.
If this festival is to continue, rather than waste public money, hand whatever is the budget to West End Centre and ask them to organise.
