    Arthur's Day, here we go again.

    Saw an ad for this, happening in September. If we're serious about tackling the drink culture in this country, this type of thing should not take place. An excuse for a drunken festival, as if we don't have enough such occasions already. If you check youtube, you can see some of the madness in previous years for yourself.

    Given that most music festivals are glorified drinking binges, a drunken festival based on the established of a drink is far more honest (I would have kept it at five year intervals myself to ensure it gets more attention when it does occur).

    It's not just a wine, it's a place in France. Maybe we should ban that too.

    The above link shows the type of rubbish that goes on. You are correct that this "festival" is entirely inappropriate.

    Enough drink in our culture already.

    This is blatant commercialism by Guinnness

    And why must nearly every VIP visitor be shown with a Guinness in his/her hand?

    It is a "nothing" festival outside the City!
