Beach party fun

Portrush will host a massive beach party on Saturday night – featuring such popular beat combos as Fatboy Slim and Timo Mass. Great.

Except.. when the Fatboy did a similar thing in Brighton in 2002, it was a disaster – news story here, personal testimony here. It was so bad that the police in Brighton have refused to let it happen again this year. Are they right or wrong? Who knows..

There’s no reason to assume that tomorrow’s night event will be anything other than a huge success, but it will be very interesting to see if the organisers have learned the lessons.
