Whitehaven festival put £5.3 million into local economy
Figures published this week in the Whitehaven News suggest that this year's Jubillee weekend Whitehaven Festival put no less than £5.3 million into West Cumbria's economy. Which at this difficult time will have been a potential life-saver for many small businesses.
Nice to see something going right. A credit to all the people who organised the festival, which was a great success.
