Since the Horniman is concerned that they might breach a licence for 10,000 people, they have decided to apply for a licence for up to 14,999 on site.

Quote from FHS:
"We are not planning events attracting over 10,000 in the course of the day, but we have applied for up to 14,999 on site ( licence bands go up in units of 5,000) to ensure that just a few people over this target do not put us in breach of our licence."

But then you have to wonder what is in place to prevent them from breaching the 14,999 limit by a few people as well? And if they do have a means and are confident of preventing it, then why canít that be applied to a 10,000 limit in the first place?

By allowing for a few people more and upping the limit to 14,999 the Horniman could actually increase its site capacity by 50% with all the potential parking problems etc.

I donít think anyone wants to deny the Horniman from raising income, it is a cherished part of Forest Hill, but what I think they should really be doing here is reassuring the local residents - by applying for a licence for 10,000 maximum and stating their intent not to breach the limit. Either you manage an event properly or it becomes a free for all.
