    Are festival-goers that stupid these days they need to be dictated of what to bring?

    It is a rebrand... I stumbled across an old video... Well, either not very well publicised or might be an i-witness (or similar) rebrand.

    well, if its all like that dreadful video of Bishop (sic) Hill (aka Fore Hamlet as is shown) then its all gonna be crap. Really annoying me that, for its inaccuracies, which in a local media organisation should just not happen... Did we ever find Holy Trinity Park? no, its non existent.

      Well, there is no such thing as local knowledge or attention to detail with Archant/the Ipswich Star.

      "Holy Trinity Park" is awful... many parks in Ipswich do events, but the main two are Christchurch Park and Holywells Park (recent-ish lottery grant). If it was a small park, rather unheard of or recreational ground conversion it wouldn't be so bad.

      It is something which really bothers/annoys me... people who take our gems for granted. Holywells Park was gifted to the town (long before the borough council was formed) by Lord Woodbridge I think it was but the Cobbolds owned it before. The reason why we have so many nice big parks is these donations. (Gippeswyk Chantry,Holywells,Bourne etc) Many other places only have big green spaces that are golf club pitches, grounds of a stately home, school playing fields and country parks. If it was down to the borough council those parks would be a lot smaller to fit in residential development.
