Manchester Mardi Gras Outdoor events Go-ahead
Quoted on the Manchester Mardi Gras Website:
Following discussions with the Police and the Council over the last week, we have to tell you that the VBA have had no option but to cancel the outdoor events and the Works Party.
A full statement is being prepared by the Chair of the committee for Monday morning, but until then, all I can tell you is that this decision has been taken on the grounds of safety and liability.
The events to be cancelled are: Sackville Park's events, including the bar, food stall and main stage, the Essential Dance Arena and compound, the Street Market, The Works Party, and, saddest of all, the Big Parade.
We, the undersigned, say Please give Manchester Mardi Gras Outdoor events the go-ahead...
