The council has done a wonderful job getting the shows they have for the Open Air Theatre. But why on earth use Apollo and Benchmark?
What experience have Apollo got at staging shows, (none that I can find); look at promises made about the “corner development”, and what did we get two blocks of pre-fab apartments and lots of talk. Hasn’t any other show promoter been contacted?
Surely there must be better choices. Qdos is based in Scarborough, aren’t they one of the biggest promoters in the country?
The council also needs to search further than Benchmark because I’m not impressed by their performance up to now.
Let’s hope they make the right choice this time, (not Benchmark) or just carry on doing shows themselves because they seem to know what they are doing.
