Oktoberfest - September 2015
An event was proposed which would involve enclosing most of the Green north of the diagonal road. They were anticipating up to 2,800 guests (subsequently reduced to 1,800) with Bavarian food, music AND ALCOHOL, for 8 days over 2 weekends.
After objections from Police, Council Noise and Nuisance officers, local residents and Friends of Haven Green, the alcohol licence was refused.
Everyone, apart from the organisers felt this was a most inappropriate event for Haven Green.
