News from the Evening Argus:
Worthing's answer to Glastonbury...Hang about, what now? Worthing has an answer to Glastonbury?
It turns out that this 'answer' consists of showing bits of Glastonbury on a big screen, which isn't so much an answer as a capitulation. But they were going to charge - yes, to watch television on a beach - so they had learned something from Cashtonbury.
Now, though, it's not going to happen:
Worthing's answer to Glastonbury has been cancelled at the 11th hour due to safety fears.Attempts to find a solution - cutting the number of marks from 500 to 350, trying to persuade the council to let them create an extra exit by taking down a fence panel - have foundered.
The good news, though, is that people from Worthing can still watch Glastonbury on televisions all over the place this weekend. Just not out of doors.
