A FAMILY festival will be bringing an 'extreme skate park' and reverse bungee jump to Weymouth seafront during the Olympic Sailing events.
Weymouth Bayside Festival is costing organisers around £700,000 to stage and will encompass a 13,300 square metre site behind the Pavilion theatre.
Highlights will include performances from 250 bands across the two-week period, an arena and food court, street theatre, more than 50 retail stands, plus a Discover Dorset zone featuring up to 20 local artists and craftsmen.
The site, which has a capacity for 8,500 people, will also boast a Jurassic exhibit, a technology zone with all the latest innovations and gadgets, giant screens throughout the site and a Try Sailing or Kayaking simulator.
On the required and only just posted - Public Notice, my Council have a new Premises License application for the above event , including a line which is asking for "Entertainment Facilities e.g skateboard display park".
Since when is skateboading, music and dancing?
