Hi Purfect - I think there's been some confusion.  There are two events.  The Let's Rock Exeter is not the same as the Radio 1 big weekend although both are being held at Powderham.  The Radio 1 Big Weekend is in May whilst the Let's Rock Exeter is in July. Not that I'm making excuses for the council paying £100k towards this of course!

@Lynne , don't you mean "free"? ;)

@Daverc - this is because these were the regionals which means tsw juniors joined up with plymouth to represent the south west.  this news item is from a 'dawlish' perspective but tsw juniors aren't just made up with dawlish people, there's children from a lot of the surrounding areas, we just mainly train in dawlish and teignmouth in the summer.

TSW Dawlish Octopush Juniors took to the road last weekend to contest the British Regional Championships.  They combined with colleagues from Plymouth and Helston to represent The South West at Under 16, Under 14 and U12 Age Groups.  Competing against The North, South East, Wales and their own South West colleagues, they “medalled” in every age group.  The South West are very strong nationally, ...

very interesting @Lynne , thanks for posting.  i don't understand the secrecy at all and why we should give the bbc any money.  if they can't afford £100,000 then perhaps they should cut the salaries of some of their 'top' presenters.  i understand that for example chris evans 'earns' an estimated £1.6 million per annum.  paying for this would be small fry.  on the plus side, councillor hook has ...

No sorry I completely disagree Lynne.  The Councils are constantly pleading tightened budgets so how does £100,000 fit in with this and why are we financially supporting Powderham and the BBC?!  I feel the way it's been funded has been devious and underhanded by both the BBC and the councils.  Crowd funding for the Hedley Centre anyone?  Need I say more.

But don't you think all the restaurants and hotels in Dawlish will benefit from this event?  Oh wait ...

CRITICS have raised concerns about the £100,000 Teignbridge Council is paying towards hosting Radio 1’s Big Weekend at Powderham. The free two-day concert will feature Coldplay, Ellie Goulding and Craig David and is expected to attract 50,000 people on both days.
