Update 3rd April 2012:
The event’s organisers have clarified the concerns over the licence for the event previously reported in the press. In a statement on the Fantasy Island Events Facebook fan page
, the organisers have stated that the licence has already been granted for the beach party. The licence for Fantasy Island has been submitted to East Lindsey District Council to be extended beyond its current 5,000 person limit (which Fantasy Island already holds for current events). If approved, the event would be entitled to support up to 10,000 guests and it is expected that more Policing and security would attend to ease the fears of local residents.
Fantasy Island are co-hosting an all night dance festival on Saturday 19th May 2012.
The event is being organised by Pleasuredome and will feature 15 hours of music, two outdoor stages, six arenas, circus freaks, fire breathers and rides. Outdoor rides will be open until 11pm, with indoor rides expected to remain open throughout the night. Joe’s Beach Bar will be utilised as a secondary venue where a beach party is planned to compliment the entertainment at Fantasy Island.
The plans have been already been met with disapproval from local residents. In a move to reassure those concerned, James Parker from Fantasy Island has highlighted that they’re anticipating 3000 people to attend this event; which is less than would normally be at the venue during the height of the season. To further reduce disturbance to local residents, it is expected that the event will move to the beach from 4am with guests being marshalled by event staff.
Similar events have been held before at the park, with the most recent in June 2009 being reported as a huge success
by organisers; despite a small number of complaints from local residents.
It is unclear whether this event will go ahead as the licence for this event has reportedly been revoked with a recommendation for the organisers to contact East Lindsey District Council.
. More information about the licence for the event has been updated at the top of this article.
There are several ticket options for the event ranging from £20 to £44; with more expensive ticket options also including access to the rides at Fantasy Island. Tickets are available to purchase from The Ticket Sellers
