Thread Name: Hull Shanty Festival 2012
Subject: RE: Hull Shanty Festival 2012
The council are making a mistake - The Shanty has been established for years by people who know how to run it. Audiences come from far and wide to support it and spend money in the area. Why can't they just let it be. Hull's heritage as a seaport deserves to have one. I heard Brady on radio recently blabbing about getting people in to the old town - and he would see to it. Nice start Stephen.

Anyway you could still do one in Minerva and Ruscadors - I'm sure they would support you with a little budget - and keep it free entry -enough people would turn up on what surely would be a busy weekend - like 2011. Good luck Pete and Mick, Les. But you should try it without council help. Just see what happens.
