Best to read the paper instead

Thousands of people emerge from trains at Carlisle station ready to savour all that the Border City has to offer.

And if they take a look at this notice, they could be forgiven for turning around and getting on the next train out of town.

The photograph was taken by a reader who was rather bemused by what it implies about Carlisle.

‘What’s going on in and around Carlisle?’

The answer is fairly damning.

A large empty space. Zero. Zilch. Nil. Not a sausage.

Of course there’s plenty going on.

JLS are the latest of many big-name acts to be playing in the city this year.

And if you want a round-up that’s a bit more comprehensive than the station notice, you’ll find it in the News & Star’s daily events guide, The List.
