Licencing issues prevent Hooded Ram to operate in Bottleneck car park for 2019 TT Council confirms

The Hooded Ram brewery will not operate out of the Bottleneck car park over TT fortnight due to licensing issues, Douglas Borough Council has confirmed.

 

Council Leader David Christian MBE JP said: ‘The Council is in no way responsible for the cancellation of Hooded Ram’s festival in the Bottleneck car park; it is solely due to the company’s unresolved licensing issues.

 

‘The Council has always been fully supportive of Hooded Ram’s plans to stage the festival again this year after the company demonstrated its competence in putting on a successful attraction in the Bottleneck over TT fortnight in 2018.

 

‘While regrettable, the event’s cancellation is totally out of our control and the Council will continue to work closely with the Hooded Ram with a view to the company securing all the appropriate licences and returning to the Bottleneck car park for TT 2020.’

 

Councillor Christian added that in light of the festival not taking place the Bottleneck would, most likely, operate as a car park as normal over the TT fortnight.
