    Talking Godiva Festival Returns

    The festival is back on after last year's floods.

    And it looks like being very a good weekend weather-wise.

    I must admit, I find this to be a little perverse. The city is cutting 'essential' services and closing things down, yet it sees fit to fund this?

    I can't help thinking that priorities are a little 'skewed'.

    Sadly, it means nothing to me. The Beatles and the Stones are far more my era

    They were fairly big in the 1990s, but disappeared into obscurity years ago.

    A very successful weekend, but the festival's future is still in doubt: http://www.coventrytelegraph.net/wha...ority-11569009

    When you read of cuts that CCC are proposing, you must seriously question them continuing to fund this.

    Personally, I wouldn't mind paying, especially with some of the big acts the festival has.

    Scandalous when you look at what this inept council has inflicted on those needing support and care.

    The 300,000 definitely could be spent more effectively.
