Worthing man’s anger at Chichester Festivities cancellation

A WORTHING man has spoken of his anger after he was turned away from a large fireworks display because of the rain – only a day after organisers told people to buy tickets.

The Chichester Festivities fireworks display, at Goodwood, was cancelled on Saturday, July 14, and Stephen O’Connor, of Dominion Road, was one of thousands expected to go to the event who was turned away at the event’s gates.

The 41-year-old said he and the seven people who had travelled to the festival had still not been given refunds.
