Riverside Festival 2019

The Festival continues to be popular with perhaps 160,000 and more visitors over the 3 days.
Fireworks remain very popular.
There was a stabbing on Friday night – best understanding is that this was between 2 people who know each other and not a random event.
Forest being drawn at home on the Saturday evening may have been a mixed blessing; some Forest fans park vehicles worth £30,000 in Meadows streets to avoid using a managed car park to save £7.

Meanwhile, the paddling pool re-opened on the Saturday.
One of the two pumps had failed, and the remaining pump could not carry the load. We’d been hoping to replace the pumps, in use since the fifties, as part of a major renewal of the site, in a few years time. But the pumps didn’t make it. We know how people enjoy the paddling, and that it’s the last such provision in the city, so we intend to keep paddling.
