Onus placed on public to make Bay Festival viable

Fri, 13 May 2011

Poor ticket sales have left the promoters of the Isle of Man Bay Festival with a problem.


The three day event on 17th, 18th and 19th June is due to feature a mix of comedy, dance shows and music acts from a number of different eras and genres.


It's being held in Noble's Park which will be split into north and south areas with stages and entertainment in each section.


The organisers say ticket sales have been poor and they're putting the onus on the public to support the event to make it viable.


They're looking at restructuring it and will make an announcement about any changes next week.


Businessman Jonathon Irving is behind the festival.


In a statement, he says it's going to cost £1.5m to stage and they need people to support it by buying tickets.


Mr Irving uses the expression "use it or lose it."


So far, Energy FM News has been unable to obtain an interview with the organisers.
