Road closure blow for Maryport Blues Festival organisers

There will be no takeaway food vans allowed on Senhouse Street during the three-day Maryport Blues Festival, which starts next Friday.

The road will also remain open to traffic during the three-day event after a mix-up by Allerdale council.

After 16 years of handling the annual road closure details, Allerdale said in a letter, dated June 16, that it did not have the authority to close the road. The reason given was that it was not a carnival or street party.

The festival committee was advised to apply to the county council for a closure permit.

But the county council said it was too late to comply with road closure regulations.

Have your say

Hoards of them heading down the road to the Blues festival they have cans of beer in there hands already they obviously can`t wait to get to the pub and get drunk,I just can`t wait to see the aftermath,Litter, spew,vandalism,these people just don`t know how to behave,It`s a pity they got the road closure on Senhouse street.
